    It is day 23. I candled my remaining eggs in bator. I saw the air pockets, so I opened eggs (carefully!) and chicks were fully formed with the yolk sac still attached. The power went out on day 17 for 12 hours. I'm so sad. I DID get 3 chicks to hatch. but about 10 that didn't. I have 3 eggs that I can't see any air pockets. I left them in bator. Does that mean they might still hatch?
