    I had 3 chics hatch on there due date the 28th or I thought it was suppose to be the due date...I still waiting on 14 other eggs to hatch..Do ya'll think I might of lost the eggs or they will hatch a day or so later? As of now they haven't hatched. And I know that there were some more eggs that were moving but, haven't even Pipped yet..Your thoughts please. [​IMG]

    Have you candled the eggs at all? You probably shouldn't candle them during the last few days of incubation, however, I think it would be a good idea so you can see what's going on in those shells and see if you have infertile eggs, quitters, or both.

    I just candled my eight eggs last night and threw away three infertile and two quitters.

    If you haven't candled them at all, you can at least easily see which ones were never fertile at all.

    At least you'll know what is happening!

    Were all the eggs put into the bator at the same time ? Did your temp stay the same or did it go up and down at all ?
