    It's day 21 for our SLW eggs and nothing has happened, no movement or anything. I'm worried that they are not gonna hatch now. Is there anything I can do?

    Not really anything you can do. Maybe your incubator was running a little cool and they will hatch soon. Have you candled them lately?

    Candled them on day 18 and looked like 3 out of the 5 eggs were gonna be hatchers. The bator did get unplugged the day before lock down for about 4 hrs before I noticed it
