    I have 23 eggs in incubator, they were due to hatch on the 16th. 3 thermometers in icubator and all 3 read 100 degrees consistently. Humidity during lockdown consistant at 65-70.
    Bought eggs from a very reputable breeder. Candled day 7 and 14 looked good to me. Not one pip peep nothing [​IMG] Any ideas?

    Have you candled them again? Just to see if anything is still going on inside there?

    What type of incubator were you using? Did you try opening any of the eggs?

    I have the styrofoam incubator from tractor supply. Got it to temp, no problem, held temp all the way. ( 3 thermometers to compare)
    I'd at least see movement when I candled, wouldn't I?
