    I have 1 piping egg but cant hear any chirping and there is no moment. I can also see some liquid still inside the egg, the outer memebranr looks brown also. Can someone give me advice on this, also its day 25 and it first piped 24hours ago :(

    25 days is late, was your incubator running too cool? If the membrane is dried out, apply some water with your finger to moisten it.

    ask on the hatching thread and check out all the notes linked. Welcome! @Sally Sunshine
    That is late, and though I have read they can rest up to 24 hours after piping, that does not sound good
