I would not remove it until at least day 28 after they starting actually sitting on it. Unless it turns grey or you can tell it is bad. I am getting a little concerned with mine also. 1 hatched and is thriving but there are still 6 that have not. The first one hatched on tuesday but I am leaving the eggs in there because momma and poppa are still sitting on them.

It’s just hard to tell, there’s no definite answers online, mine still has veins visible but I don’t know if they disappear or not if the chick dies and how quickly they disappear, every time I search online I end up on sites for chickens! Lol

LOL I know! I have done the same and ended up with water candling eggs but those were chickens! The good news here is that the parents haven't kicked the eggs out so I am going to just leave them until there is more evidence that they aren't viable.
