Began with 9 batam silkie eggs in incubator with a hatch date of day 21 being today, Nov.16.
Well all have hatched last night and 2 this morning except 1 egg.
I don't see any external pip...I did candle and did not see any internal pip either. I didn't think to check for veins when I did it though.
Had the 2 that hatched early this morning still in the incubator with the 1 egg so I hated to make them keep waiting if it is dead.
All that to say I candled it in the dark closet holding it up to my flashlight. So I can't say for sure if there was movement as I was shake due to health problems.
Any advice as to what to do now or how long to give it to try and pip? When would yall call the hatch finished and stop?
This is one egg I had no questions about during all prior candling...so not sure if it may still make it or not.

Give it a few more days. If it hasn’t hatched by day 24-25 then I’d say it died and get rid of it. Try to disturb it as little as possible.
