    I'm on day 21 of incubating eggs under a broody hen. Only 1 has hatched so far and that was earlier this morning. I have 7 other eggs which haven't even pipped yet. How can I tell if they're still gonna hatch or if I should throw them out, other than candling them/the water test because both of these methods said one egg wasn't rotten but it turned out it was. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    Good to hear you got one. I would candle any that haven't hatched after today to see what you can see.
