    I had 4 chicks hatch, today is day 21. Still have 5 to go but they are taking a beating from the ones that hatched already! No pips or any kind of movement from the other 5. I put 2 of the 4 in the brooder..they are the oldest and most active. I didn't loose any temp or humidity in the incubator. Question is do the other 5 have a chance after taking a beating from the other chicks? I would really like to see them at least rock a little.

    Quote:Yes sure they have a chance, it's only day 21 you can give them at least 3 more days. Did you candle on day 18?
