    Everybody says that it cam take a little bit longer sometimes! But i am not used to having to be this patient! I have heard about the float testr but i have decided to wait a few more days before i do that maybe they are just not ready to hatch yet!

    FYI--floaty test is not accurate.

    I remember feeling the stress and anxiety of hatching; much easier to have the hens do the work. [​IMG]

    Good luck hope you have a few fuzzies hatch over the next few days! [​IMG]

    If there's no action, no peeping into day 23, I would candle and put the egg back exactly the same way
