I was candling some of my Self Blue D'Uccle eggs today. I was sitting on the floor candling. This one I was looking at has a moving chick in it and I can not believe it! The egg rolled out of my hand and smacked right onto my hardwood floors. This egg will be on day 18 tomorrow I re-candled and saw the poor thing moving but I cracked the shell on the egg. No bleeding... hard to tell if I torn the membrane but I figured no blood so hopfully I am ok on that one. I put it in my hatcher I figured since the egg was cracked I did not want the membrane to dry out and tomorrow is day 18. Has anyone here dropped a day 17 egg and had it hatch out I am so upset these are my DD's show birds!
