There are a number of hatchers here. Can you tell us what temperature and humidity you have been using (Relative Humidity or Wet Bulb?) Did you happen to weigh the eggs before putting them in the incubator?

Have you candled them?

I am not a hatcher, just trying to think of the kind of information that might help someone help you. There is a sticky on hatching waterfowl eggs.

Thanks for your reply, since posting this have had movement from 2 of my cayuga eggs and have heard chirping. Just checked on them again and 1 have pipped so all good for now :)
