I only see pipping on one more egg out of 10 remaining. How long do I give them before I call it done and start a new batch?
I recommend (at least for new hatchers) give it 24 hours after the last hatcher and then candle and look for signs of life or internal pips. If there is none, tap into the air cell(s) and check for life before moving on to eggtopsies or tossing if you don't do eggtopsies.
I myself if the majority are hatched and there isn't any more pipping, I candle and look for life. I am at a point where I am confident in being able to tell whether a chick is still viable so I usually don't wait an extra 24 hours. I do still tap into the air cell first to double check though and I do eggtopsies on any that didn't hatch. My first hatch (which was a flop and only produced one surviving chick) I didn't do the eggtopsies and I have always regretted it.
Basically it comes down to when you're comfortable with judging what you are seeing (or not seeing.)
The digital LGs are awful for being way off on temps and humidity. Best thing you can do is have your own checked and accurate therms and hygros in them.
