Should I be doing something?

    Experienced chick hatchers....
    I am on day 21 of bantam D'Anver eggs. One out of the four I set made it to lockdown, but nothing is happening. I was so hoping to just wake up to peeping, but that would be too easy. I had originally thought all four of the eggs quit at day seven, but I just set them aside and candled again on day 14. To my surprise I had the one developing. I ran a dry hatch until lockdown and now is at around 70 % h.

    Should I be doing something? Waiting is not my strong suit.

    Not much you can do unless the chick pips and has time for the "egg to chick" vascular system to shut down.
