    All eggs were started on the same day. I still have 15 in the bator and not one of them has pipped!! 2 hatched a little early, the last hatched yesterday about 3pm. Just wondering if it is normal for hatches to "stagger" so much, or maybe my eggs are bad.

    Sounds like this hatch is finished.... and you didn't open the bator the last three days?

    I did open it very quickly to get out the dried chicks. I sprayed with water when I did open it. Unfortunately, I don't have anything to check humidity.
