    Yes, if you're sure they are 29 days along, I would toss them. In fact, I would open them before I tossed them to see if they even started developing and, if so, how far along they got. You know for sure they were fertile, right?

    ETA: OR you could play it safe and candle them before tossing them or opening them.

    I'd candle, but if it is day 29 for sure, the eggs are well past hatching.... Sorry.[​IMG]

    You said some are piping, those will hatch. They were most likely laid later than the others.
    Canle the eggs and toss only those you are sure are pass due. If you see movement in any of the eggs give them as chance.

    there is to pipping or peeping.

    Did you mean "there are 2 pipping or peeping" or did you mean "there is NO pipping or peeping"?​

    Looks like a typo..... "no" pipping fits the sentence though! "to" just doesn't work in the sentence, even if it was "2"!!
