Sorry you haven't heard from anybody yet. I had to get rid of eggs that didn't hatch either by 30th day. Only one hatched. I've also had to throw away a whole nest of duck eggs because None were fertilized. I'm afraid that might be your situation.

I would toss eggs after day 25. I have never had anything hatch after that point. If she is still determined you can try to add new chicks under her.

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!
