    if your eggs haven't pipped yet, tap them and listen for chirps, if you hold them in your hand and feel moving put them in the incubator---- for all of the ones that had no activity water candle them, just make sure there are ABSOLUTELY NO PIPS even internal ones. here is a good video that i used to water candle my eggs----

    Don't worry, i had the same problem, today is day 22 for me and only one hatched so far, so just be patient, can i have some info on when you put them in, what temp/humidity, how many, did you candle at day 7 14 and 18, did you lock down and stuff

    Ok sounds great you should just wait and see! Sounds like your hatch is going to do better, if not as good, as mine did! I had problems along the way but one ended up hatching and two piped. Just relax and be patient sounds like they are going to hatch keep me posted ;)

    It's totally fine, do you know how to make your own thread, if not go to your inbox and read about it ;) I have never had an incubator with a fan so I would ask some other people! Hope your hatch turns out great and :welcome
