That egg is probably no good. Are you 100% sure they are fertile. I would use that egg to check if there is at least a fetus. If the eggs is still nice and white and not deflated much, i may be still good. Make sure its not to humid in there and that its about 85-90 degrees. In my personal experience the information i read online (not from this website) resulted in the same problems you have and they all rotted. Change the soil they are resting on and try not to change the positions of the eggs to much, it can kill them. I run a fan on my eggs to keep the air moving, seems to do the trick.
