    I've got 6 eggs in my incubator 5 of them our 26 days old and 1 of them is 29 days old. I've been candling all of them and they are all still alive. any ideas why they haven't pipped yet![​IMG]

    Still alive is a good sign. Without an internal pip, you probably shouldn't try to assist quite yet.

    Day 29 is late, but not unreasonably so. The 26 day eggs aren't late yet.
