    Only one. Wait!
    I had two chicks hatch last weekend on day 21 and 22. they did not pip until very late on day 21 but one did manage to pip and hatch in just a few hours. the other piped and then just sat and sat and sat. It did finally manage to get the job done though. So just keep watching, they will get with it.

    I agree. Patience. If your average incubating temperature is just a tiny bit low, they can be a bit late. Keep the humidity where it is supposed to be and keep that incubator closed.

    Good luck!!!

    temp is at 101, and humidity around 72%. the waiting game is terrible, but we are keeping are fingers crossed.
