Hello my egg is on day 30 today it’s still chirping and moving but has yet to hatch. Should I intervene or continue to let it try on its own. I took it out to candle and it’s very loudly chirping but not hatched still. Any advice helps!

If it was mine, I'd assist. Peahen eggs are very very strong and hard. It sounds like it's in distress and running out of air and needs help. Start with a safety hole. Then I make the hole a little bigger so I can access the situation. Keep making the hole bigger until the chick is able to wiggle out on its own. You will need to put coconut oil or something, I use olive or canola oil on the membrane so it can break free from the egg.
Don't wait, put the safety hole in now.
