Take a deep breath and recount the days and step away for exactally 24 hours. Then check and again and hope for the best. The second time I hatched eggs in a cardboard box I threw the towel in on them and stopped looking and got one chick on day 24!
I guess I'm not the only one up at this hour.
Gee, you guys! I had to go to bed! My troll-netting activities wore me out last night. I let our other talented mods take over since my back was killing me by after midnight!
Day 24(10:38am) NOTHING!!! What is wrong with them?
Oh, Coty Jo - you are living my nightmare!
I hope something shows itself soon - will you intervene?
I'm on day 21 and nothing either, though I had wriggling chicks when I took a quick candling peek last night, so I'm not giving up yet!
have you put any of the eggs to your ear to hear if they are tapping it?
Try candling and seeing if any of them have broken through the air cell.
Have you had any temp spikes? Hows your Humidity?
What is the quality of the eggs? Are they pullet eggs? Were they shipped?
Some were shipped and 4 of them are my eggs. Should I go ahead and candle them? I had some temp spikes but not bad enough to hurt them. My humidity stayed between 30% and 50% for the first 18 days and then went up to 65% to 75%.
OK, so what if none are through the air cell? I candled mine last night on day 21 start, when I had to open the bator for a min to drop the humidity some, and none were in the air cell yet, but I could see movement in all the eggs I spot checked.
It's almost the end of day 21 for me, and no pips yet...
