    Did you candle at lock down? What did you see?

    I had all mine hatch on days 23 and 24 last time. Maybe too low of a temp? I don't know, but give it another day, and then maybe think about putting them up to your ear and listening for tapping? It doesn't always happen exactly as planned...

    Don't be like so many people who give up and kill off all their chicks. Wait till day 25 or 26, keep the temps and humidity right and sit on your hands. Then post chick pics when you get those little peepers out. Don't open the incubator! Let them get ready.

    Remember. Chcicks are babies. Babies come when they want to not always when expected.

    as someone said,

    "INCUBATE TILL IT STINKS!!"

    and don't call it a day beforehand!

    bless you
