Day 22 and not even a pip

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

At what point is it ok to give up and not feel guilty? Today is day 22 for us.

17 eggs, 15 taken out after candling on the 14th day, when opened nothing in 10 and a little blood ring in 5.

Last two and upon candling it looks like one was going to make it and one looked like a quiter but figured

I'd leave it just in case. No sounds coming from eggs, no pip, new eggs coming today (but of course need to settle after shipping for 12 to 24 hrs.

Should I give up today or wait another day or two?

give them time this may sounded crazy but play a video with sound really loud near the incubator the sound should be of baby chicks hatching and chripping

I already figured one of the two left was a quiter and just now candled it again and was sure of it, opened in and it was a nasty mess, figured it quit maybe a week ago. (gross) However the other looks totally dark, my incubator went to high two days back for a short time, may of killed the last one. We though we saw it move yesterday but no movement today yet.
