    I would give the unhatched egg an extra day or so and then pull it to candle and discard if it is no good.

    I also want to mention that chicks should not be on newspaper. It is very slippery for their legs and can cause slipped tendons (commonly known as spraddle leg). Paper towel would be better. Very cute chicks!
