Yesterday was day 21 for my incubated chicks! I have one that has hatched but the others that were candled and looked good still are not doing anything. One has started but then stopped! I am new to this and still learning! Help

Is the humidity high enough? That's a problem with most newbies.

Hmm, are they Standards? Are they Bantams? 

Sometimes when you use smaller eggs from standards they won't hatch because not enough room, Same with Bantams. 

Most times breeders ship/give you weird eggs to hatch. you only want to hatch the "finest" of these or else it's a waste of time.

What was your temp the first 18 days? Still or forced air incubator? Did you calibrate your instruments before starting?

Im using a circulating air incubator. The temperature throughout incubation has been 100-101. I am using my own eggs they are road island reds and its our first time trying to hatch our own. I have over 20 that looked great day 18 on lockdown and now i have only had 1 hatch and 1 died and its day 22!
