So I am hatching 6 silkies that i purchased from Ebay. Have candled and still have live embryos-definately 4. It is day 20. I noticed that almost all the eggs have that valley like air cell and from what I've read that is a bad sign. But I see the chicks moving inside regardless. Do I help them hatch? I'm not worried about "breeding weakness" into them. I just need to ensure they hatch! PS-I just hatched 3 polish chickens and helped two hatch that had difficulty. I don't need lectures on humidity and hatching. I just need to know if the eggs with deep valleys and dips in the air cell need help hatching! Any info is so greatly appreciated!!
