    Day 21 for our 32 and we still have 8 that have not pipped yet but I fully expect them to in the next day or so. Don't give up just yet!​

    Always give it a few extra days just in case there was a temp drop or your thermometer is off. If it still hasn't hatched by day 24, then you might consider checking to see what went wrong and where.​

    They ALWAYS go later than day 21, I always tell myself they get READY to hatch on the 21st, lol. I usually have them hatch between the 22nd and 25th... and if your incubator is running on the cool side then it can take them even longer.

    Just be patient and don't open the incubator!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
