    Hi, this is our first time hatching , we put the eggs in the incubator 7 days ago and we have one pipping and cheeping away already ! We candled them last night and a few did look good - are we right in thinking that they must have been under the hen for longer than was orginally thought ?We have stopped the turning thing and increased the humidity ( we have a brinsea ocatagon 10) anything else we need to do ??

    Sounds like you have it covered.... Eggs were 14 days in when you got them in the incubator.

    They were definatly under the hen longer than you thought.

    It's just not possible for an egg to hatch, or even attempt

    hatching at only 7 days in the 'bator.
