    My silkie chicks are to hatch on the 26th. I candled last night and I can see is the air sacs. Are the chicks too far developed to see them?

    It is possible that you won't see anything from here on out. That's a good thing. I wouldn't candle any more... just wait to see what happens! Congrats!
