    [​IMG] Tomorrow is Day 18 (May 31). I cant candle the eggs because they are blue and I cant see in them.
    Now what ?
    Do I sit and wait?
    How long do I leave them in there after Day 21 if they dont hatch?

    Yup, sit and wait, it's very trying I know [​IMG] I would keep the eggs until maybe day 24 to see if anything hatches. We had our last chick hatch on day 24 [​IMG] Patience, patience, Patience!
    Good luck with your hatch! [​IMG]

    I'm on day 23 and my last 4 stragglers are still in there...I can't see in mine either...looks like a whole lot of chicken but can't tell. I will wait another day yet. I just don't want them to blow!
