    I need some advise I have 5 eggs left in incubator I have had 7 hatch 2 needed help n I had 1 that didn't make it but there are still 5 in there it's now day 24 I candled them in a humid room and saw movement had to remove the others due to them being born on the 19th day is there still hope for the others? I did the water test on the 23rd day couldn't see them move so today I candles 1 (afraid to loose to much humidity if I candles all of them) it was moving but I'm not sure why I haven't heard or seen anything while in the incubator :( is there hope for my babies n why is it taking them so long it's a forced air incubator humidity is at 65 n temp is good so should I wait long n how long is to long?

    If you saw movement in the eggs then give them some more time. I think most on this board will tell you that they can hatch up until Day 25.
  3. Just keep waiting....:)......

    Best of luck!
