    Looking for advice. I am hatching about 30 eggs in my special education classroom. Today is day 21. Yesterday we saw movement in several of the eggs just setting in the incubator. Today seemed very quite. Should I be concerned? I am very anxious, not my first hatch but I have some excited kiddos on my hands. My worry is that we lost electricity for about two hours 8 days ago. Did my best to keep things warm. Just using the Little Giant incubator with egg turner. Can anyone calm my nerves....

    A brief cool down may delay your hatch a little. And honestly I usually do not see any movement, or hear any cheeping, until the chicks are pipped. Hang on! [​IMG]
