    Does your incubator have a window? If it does use a flaslight and look carefully at each egg to see if there are any places with little "stars" where the chick is trying to break the shell. Don't open it though.[​IMG]

    It might be that your bator ran a little cool, that could set you back a day or so.
    Keep us posted.

    what have your temperatures been and the humidity from the start of the hatch?

    Did you candle your eggs at day 7-10 to check for development? and then again on day 18 to check the air cells?
