I've read about some hatching on day 20, maybe even 21, so I wouldn't give up yet.

I have had them hatch as late as day 20, 21 also. Hang in there and keep the bator closed lol!!!
I know it makes you crazy!
I've hatched over 3 years now and I still get anxious, run to the incubator just to peer in and knowing its not even time yet, lol. I have 44 chicks out of 60 eggs this week so far and several are hatching or zipping. It never gets old for me.
@emcrowder hows your humidity?
I can't really tell what my humidity is because the incubator's hydrometer is always telling the wrong humidity (switches back and forth between percentages constantly). I have a little giant still air incubator and I've heard others have had a problem with this as well but I just do the best I can and fill the trays with water. These little guys are jiggling around I just wish they would take the next step!
LOL.. they will hopefully! If you have the water tray full you are good. Hope they pop out by morning!
6-8 weeks depending on the line of birds you have and what they are eating.
