    I would candle it and wait a couple of days. Mine were all due to hatch on Friday and Saturday. I have some that have not hatched but the incubator goes off today. I set the eggs on Wednesday morning for hatching and my first chick hatched on Wednesday evening with the others hatching Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I did put one dozen in the incubator one day and another dozen on the next day when I first put the eggs into the incubator, so I expected the hatch to be a little longer.
