    We are at day 21:

    So far 6 have hatched live. (3 Saturday. 3 yesterday.)
    1 pipped but didn't unzip.
    1 pipped this morning.
    And 1 to go.

    For a first timer - I can say this has far exceeded my expectations! I assumed we'd only have 2/3, if any from what I've read, for the first hatch or 2.

    Well done on your first time :D Far better than mine was. Mine was a total bust, nothing hatched.

    It's quite a drawn out hatch you have so I would double your temps. You may have hot and cold spots in your incubator.

    Good luck with your new babies :)
