Will chicks move less right before hatch?

    I'm hatching out some eggs and when I candle them (they are suppose to be hatching) there is no movement in them at all. There was two days ago but not today. I did candle one that I DID see moving. should I wait before throwing them out?

    By the time they're ready to hatch there's not a whole lot of space left for them to move a lot. I often don't see much movement when I move them to the hatcher.
