    Everybody else is hatch out. 15 sucessful hatches. Now I have 8 eggs left. No signs of pipping. What to do? How long do you give them till it's over?

    About 3 days after the time most of them hatched.

    Do you leave the hatched chicks in the bator while waiting or take them out? what should the temps be at hatching?

    I dont worry about assisting in lockdown and if the other eggs have not externally pipped then you're not going to do any harm. If your chicks are dried out and active then I'd remove them. Temp 37.5 for forced air and 65-75% for lockdown humidity [​IMG]

    You can leave them in there for up to 3 days after the first hatches. If you have no more pips you can get them out an mist the eggs to bring the humidity back up.

    The temp should be the same as the rest of the incubation 99.5 or (101 still air)
