    This is my first hatch and on day 21 I had one hatch, then on day 22 the second one and day 23 the third on hatched (with wry neck). I have three more eggs in the incubator that had movement at day 18 when I went into lock down. I candled again last night (day 23) and one had movement inside of it, the other two were too dark for me to make out any movement but the eggs were full up to the air pocket.....the one that has movement, how long should I keep it in the incubator before I assist....? Do some eggs sometimes take longer...when do I give up and turn of the bator?
