    i am on day 22 too. so far 5 out of my 19 hatched so there are stil 14 in the incubator i thought something was wrong yesterday since none were pipping bet i woke up to my 5th chick. so just keep waiting and make sure your temperature and humidity are right

    If you have had ANY low temps during incubation that can delay hatching up to 2 days.

    Late on day 22, I would remove the ones hatched to a brooder, and candle the remaining eggs quickly to not lose heat or humidity. If any show movement, then I would take further steps. Like a small pinhole in the airsac end of the egg.
