The sixth egg did not hatch so this afternoon I took it out. We had reached the point where even if it had hatched today it would have been four days behind its siblings with almost no chance to make it in the nest. I noticed it did not have any pip marks, so after I candled it and didn't see anything, I broke it and it contained nothing but egg white and a little yellow yoke. The female was still turning it last night and probably would have kept turning it for a few more days, had I not removed it.

Here is a closeup taken with a macro lens Not much to see except the feathers are starting to come out. But you can assume that if the sixth one had hatched today it would be under this pile.
