how long is too long to wait for the rest of the eggs to hatch?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We set 35 eggs in the incubator March 17 th late in the afternoon. We had one hatch out during the night last night, April 8-9, I candeled a few eggs last night and there was movement. But no more hatching today.  How much longer should leave the eggs in the incubator?

I always leave eggs in the incubator until Day 25.  That's just me.... but I've had some late hatchers on day 25 before!

Buncha Outdoor PET chickens, ducks, five Toulouse geese, and four turkeys....so far. Plus 2 wiener dogs, some bunnies and a rescue cat which owns me. Oh. And a house silkie....
