    I candled last night before lockdown. I had my days off and thought day 18 was monday or tuesday, it was yesterday. [​IMG] Anywway, when I candled the eggs, I couldn't see much of anything, just full darkness inside. Is that normal? Also, eggs aren't moving, should they be? Today is day 19, if that helps.

    As long as you stopped turning them, raised the humidity and lef thtem alone all you can do is wait. If the egg is completely dark then the chick is probably internally pip and should be starting soon. good luck.

    Should I be hearing anything or seeing them move?
