21 days is just a guide. Some can hatch a little later or a little earlier.

Did things look to be developing ok when you have candled the eggs during incubation?

Have your temps & humidity been ok during incubation?

Have you used separate known to be correct thermometer & hygrometer to make sure the incubator is running correctly?

Thanks. The americana eggs are a little harder to see but i saw darkness so i think there is two. Also on day 17 i saw one moving around. The meters seem accurate.

A power outage could have caused a slight delay so try not to worry.

Did you count the day you set them as day 1 or day 1 after a full 24 hours of incubation?

Have you got your humidity up to at least 65%?

Used cooling for an hour a day for the first time and was surprised to find the chicks are late to hatch. Patience.
