    Hi all

    I successfully hatched 17 of 26 eggs. Pictures of chicks follow. They started hatching Sunday morning at around 4 a.m. and the last one hatched around 5 today. None of the other eggs are pipped. I plan to leave them in the bator until I get off work tomorrow. Yesterday was exactly three weeks. Do you think that is enough time for all chicks to hatch or should I leave the eggs longer if none hatch??

    I would give them at least another 2 days, maybe even longer...3 or 4 days? Some just take longer..maybe they were in a cool spot in the bator. Congrats on the hatch, those are some real cuties!!
