    I candled them on day 18 and all five were alive, but there have been no signs from them since. Any ideas?

    Id be concerned, but Id give them a few more days. If your temps are off just a little bit, it could slow them down.

    Hmm I dont know. Were your temps a little low? Low temps can cause the chicks to hatch a few days late.
    Mine lately have been piping on day 19 and hatching on days 20 and 21.
