First time incubation/hatching question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I put 7 eggs into my incubator in my classroom.  Last night (4/28/16) one egg hatched (they named it Jeffrey).  I have four more eggs that have been candled and are suppose to hatch.  None of them are showing signs of any movement, hatching, etc.  Should I panic?  Should I just wait and see what happens?  Help!

tap on it lightly to see if it will peep at you

Wait another day. If they don't hatch, they aren't going to.

:welcome  What day did the one that hatched hatch on? Was it on time, early or late?
