I have not had much luck with the banty eggs hatching. I have had two chicks completely form then die prior to hatching. I have only had 3 banty chicks out of about 16 eggs actually make it. I don't know why because the standard eggs have about a 98% hatch rate. The last one that didn't make it, I could hear it chirping in the egg and it never hatched... it just got more and more quiet. I now have another one that I can hear chirping but there are NO cracks in the egg yet. I really want to let nature take it's course but I know I will get no sleep tonight worrying about this chick. Suggestions? I do NOT want to let another one die slowly in the egg.
