We set 10 eggs 21 days ago and 4 more the next day. So, they are "due" today and tomorrow. Three hatched yesterday. One egg is pipped, but has been since last night with no noticable improvement. The chick is still moving and peeping, so I am not going to intervene yet. Another egg (one that is due tomorrow) has audible movement inside, but no peeping. One other egg I heard movement in this morning, but no peeping and I didn't hear any when I just checked. The other eight eggs are silent. Should I be hearing movement? This is our first incubator hatch. At one point I know the humidity dropped, but I don't know how much (we don't have a humidity gauge--something I will invest in before we do this again). Our house is an old house (100 yrs old so not insulated lol) and not prone to being dry in the summer, so hopefully it wasn't too bad. The temp has been good the whole time. I don't want to intervene if I don't need to, but I don't want to wait and lose all the eggs--most of the ones that are silent are the purebred Ameraucanas (of COURSE all the barnyard mixes seem to be doing just fine). I am just worried that a drop in humidity will have made it too hard for them to break out. We did candle, but had a hard time telling if there was movement. Definitely air pockets in all of them and a dark mass, so I think they all had chicks. Anyway, my question is basically, if I am not hearing anything, is that certain doom for most of them? And, for the chick that started breaking through last night--how many hours do I let him work before I "help."
