3 out of 9 eggs that i believed to be good hatched yesterday how long should i give the other 6 in the bator? No signs of pipping from what i can see.

Normally I keep my incubator going until day 24 or 25 just because I did have one hatch at day 23. Some people argue that you could end up with chicks that take longer and longer to hatch if you do that but I'm not a hatchery and it's not a big deal to me.

Hope that helps,

I would wait for up to 27 days or so. I had only three out of 13 hatch and I heard chirps already, but none hatched. I still think that 27 days would be best in case there are fellows that are just taking a bit more time to hatch out of their shells. I hope you have adorable Chicks!
