    I put 7 eggs into my incubator in my classroom. Last night (4/28/16) one egg hatched (they named it Jeffrey). I have four more eggs that have been candled and are suppose to hatch. None of them are showing signs of any movement, hatching, etc. Should I panic? Should I just wait and see what happens? Help!

    Wait another day. If they don't hatch, they aren't going to.

    [​IMG] What day did the one that hatched hatch on? Was it on time, early or late?
