    If your temps were a bit low it's not uncommon for the hatch to be a day or two behind. Also, many people count the day they put the eggs in the bator as day 1, but unless you set them in the morning you shouldn't start counting until the next morning. Hope you get a few! [​IMG]

    What kind of bator are you using--still air or does it have a fan? I was told to go with 101 f (38.33 c) taken at the top of the eggs for a still air, but it was a bit hot because my first batch hatched early. I know that the temp is different for forced air bators, but I don't remember off-hand what it should be. Maybe someone who does will chime in, if not I'll look it up after I get my 10 year-old settled down with his homework.
