And no pips, no peeps, nothin. I cracked open one of the banty eggs, and the chick was alive, and the blood was still fresh. It should still hatch, I used the same method on one of my other chicks. I cracked a Wellie egg, and it was VERY dead. What I need to do for the project that is due tomorrow is weigh hatched chicks. If they are dead, but fully formed, then I can weigh them, but if they are alive and not hatched, then I don't know what to do! Should I crack open another Wellie egg, until I find a live one? HELP!!!! P.S. The experiment compares the starting weight of the egg with the hatched weight, in bantam and standard eggs. If worse comes to worse, is there anybody out there that has an average measure of bantam and standard eggs at hatching? Preferably Cochin bantam and Wellie standard?
