Hi there first hatch. We are in the middle of day 17 and i wanted to do a final candle before lock down. I notices one egg has some strange objwct resting on the border between the egg cell and the mass. See pics. No noticeble movement. Ive notices they are all much less active. We had a temp spike up ti 101.3 the other night. Could this have harmed the hatch. Spike was day 15 or 16 for about 3hrs max. I was at work no idea of exact time. See pic of the questionable one

Leave it in during lock down. I had one that looked just like that. No movement either. I pulled it out and cracked it open. Chick was alive! I felt HORRIBLE. Now, who is to say it would have hatched. Maybe it was on it's way to quitting. But I will never know. Id keep it in.

I'd give it a chance....a temp spike of 101.3 isn't likely to kill them. I've had temp spike up to 103 at least 5 times and mine are still gowing every time I candle them they have filled the egg a bit more....
