I have 2 silkie eggs in my incubator on day 18. I am going to be moving them to the hatcher here shortly and I just candled them. The chickies in the eggs are moving around and everything but the egg only looks half filled out. Will this change? Well, more then half... But the chick inside is clearly defined. The other eggs are all black and can't see much but a little veining. So I am wondering if I should put them in the hatcher? Is this normal? I've never hatched bantam eggs, only LF.

yes that sounds good as long as they are moving around means they are fine. the more space the easier they will maneuver around to get out easier too. Put them in the hatcher and wait.
