    Today is Day 16 and i've already had 4 eggs hatched - moved those cuties into brooder. When I came back to see the remaining eggs in the incubator there is 1 egg that won't stop moving - almost like it's shivering. It's been going on now for 10 minutes or so. Is that normal? Has anyone had that happen? There is another egg next to it that moves frequently in its place too but it's moving randomly.. not like this egg that seems to be shivering.

    Should I worry? My neck is hurting from looking (down) at it.

    And is it normal to do absolutely nothing for hours on end just staring at incubating eggs, baby chicks and week old chicks? I haven't 'wasted' this much time doing jack in soooo long!!! LOL [​IMG]

    The egg finally stopped shaking after about an hour... It slowed down then came to a complete stop and hasn't moved again since..hope it's just resting and makes its way out.
