    The skin grows around the organs closing them in . What happened to yours is it sounds like it died before it could finish feathering, and doesnt sound like anything was wrong. If you have pics post them.

    Day 16: Beak, claws, and scales relatively cornified; albumen is practically gone and yolk increasingly important as food source; down feathers cover body; intestinal loops begin to retract into body.

    By looking at the video, does it look like there is too much condensation in the egg? Could he/she drown?

    Day 18: Blood volume decreases, total blood hemoglobin decreases. Embryo should be in proper position to hatch: embryo's long axis the same as long axis of egg; head in large end of egg; head to right and under right wing; beak pointed toward air cell; feet toward head.
