    I have 5 Brahma eggs that are on their 22nd day. When I candle them with a small LED flashlight, I see the eggs are 3/4 solild. If the chicks are ready to hatch, shouldnt the egg be full except for the air pocket? I do not see any movement.
    I don't hear anything and they have been in an incubator except for pulling them out to candle this morning.

    Does anyone have any idea if these will hatch or not?
    Also..I'm new at this forum, so I can't figure out how to upload a picture of the egg candleing. But I would gladly text a picture or send it to an email if anyone would like to see.

    I've had a couple of eggs go to 23 days, but they were pipping and rocking a day before that. I have trouble candleing brown eggs after the first week; you need a REALLY bright light.
