    I am pretty knew to this. We had 3 hatch yesterday, nothing after 3PM though. Should I float test the rest?

    Yes, woke up yesterday to two chicks and then one more was born at 3 PM and nothing since. Is this common?

    Quote:Sounds like you are having a late hatch.. did you have low temps during the incubation?.. if you did it could cause a late hatch.. i would wait another day before float testing
