    If it moves when you move the egg it is probally dead. Sorry, it happens to the best of them. It took my 3rd hatch til I got it right. What kind of incubator do you have?

    Quote:I just finished my second hatch...4 eggs remained without pips or anything. I candled and saw the same thing in 2 of them. I waited another day and then opened all of them. They were dead. I got 24 beautiful chicks out of 28 eggs though. I would say that the poor lil' chick is dead in your egg. I'm so sorry.

    Try again nightflash. In the beginning my first 2 hatches not a thing. You will learn from each one and improve.
