    We are on day 21 Almost day 22 starting at 4:30pm.
    i am left with 4 out of the 8 eggs we started with..
    a couple had blood rings and one wasnt fertilized and the other i accidently cracked on day 12.

    With the 4 we have left 2 are completly dark when candled, doesnt seem like theres an air sac at all now.
    the other 2 definely have an air sac still.

    Ive noticed no pipping, no chirping and no movement.

    Whats going on witht hem and when should i completely worry about the babys?

    I'm in the same situation! We have a broody sat on 11 eggs, day 21 today - she stood up for a drink so I got a quick look at the eggs but absolutely no sign of anything. I've read before that it can be any time up to day 25 as temp can make a difference (slightly warmer temp can be early hatch, slightly colder temp can be a late hatch) so I'm going to hold out till then. Good luck!
