    Officialy day 21 as of late last night and nothing, not 1 sign that any thing is happening or going to happen as yet. I run downstairs this morning thinking i will be seeing some thing happening and i felt so upset when every thing was still the same as when i went to bed.
    This is nerve racking [​IMG]

    I have 5 light sussex due today, i have another batch of 4 white silkies due next week wednesday.
    I had to go college today as it was my 1st day back but what ireally wanted to do was stay at home and watch my eggs [​IMG], i'm glad i did go cos i would of been driving myself mad staring at the bator.
    Well i could not wait to get back home and see if i had any thing happening, unfortunatelly nothing new, eggs are still sitting in bator, no moving, no sound and no pips [​IMG].
    How long do i wait if nothing happens?, tonight at midnight i will be hitting day 23.

    I have tried putting me ear to see if i can hear some thing but no nothing, not a sound coming from the eggs.
    My temps have been good, i'm using a brand new brinsea mini which i did double check with another thermometer that the temp was right and it was spot on.
    When i candled on day 18 before lockdown they was all moving and looking good, i have kept the humidity at 70 since lockdown.
    I will give it a bit longer as i know a lot of people on here have had late hatches but how long do i leave it?.
