Still no movement or peeping or chirping, etc.

What is the maximum amount of time/days to let the egg still be in the incubator before deciding to throw it out?

People have said to wait for the Day 26 mark.
Question is, should I?

Thanks for all your replies.

Yes. Wait longer. Uneven temperatures or slightly cool temperatures in the incubator can delay a hatch. I'd give it to at least 25 days.

I agree. A friend was disposing of unhatched eggs on day 25 once and one of the eggs in the trash moved!

She put it back in the incubator and it finally hatched out a huge blue Orp. rooster!
