Black Copper Maran Hatch Goes Well

The Black Copper Marans eggs that I set 21 days ago is almost completely hatched.  Out of the 17 eggs that made it to day 18, it seems like only one will not hatch.  We currently have 15 chicks, 1 zipper, 1 pipper and 1 silent egg.  I took it out of the incubator and tapped it while holding to my ear and didn't hear a peep.  So, he is either dead or is yet to internally pip.  I won't give up on it until late tomorrow.

I couldn't believe that the rain turned to snow this morning but only for about an hour.
