its day 22 and nothing and i know my temp was 96 for awhile so should i wait or toss them?
Wait til day 25, I just had a chick hatch out on Easter Sunday that was a day 25 chickie. My temps in one of the bators was off big time.
ok i will do i just hope some hatch im tired of not having any hatch and ive had people give me advice and i follow it and they never hatch i just wish this one will be different if anyone has the time would they mined typing up what they do day by day and pm it do me or put it on here it dont matter
Try to hold on. I just had a set of eggs to hatch 4 days late. Yes, 4 days late! 18 of 18 developed. 4 stopped early. 10 of 14 hatched! w00t!!
This morning I brought all of my 21 eggs outside to toss - thinking that at day 23 they were all certainly dead. One had even tried to pip and died in the shell. So, I open the incubator - and .... I thought there was a birds' nest near by -- it was my incubator! I rushed inside and plugged it back in. Today I have 2 eggs with holes formed and active birds inside and one that is out as of an hour ago.
Still a dismal hatch considering the amount of eggs - but I almost tossed 3 good ones. Wait.
I had a day 26 egg hatch - and it was under a broody. She wouldn't budge off her nest for the one chick she had so I bought her a couple more chicks and when I went to switch out the eggs for the chicks, one of them was smashed and had a live baby in it. I think mama knew it was still in there and smashed the shell to try and get it out. So don't give up - a broody mama wouldn't!
i will wait but its so hard to wait
