    Hello!

    We have 12 eggs in our bator. Today is day 23. We had 3 hatch yesterday on day 22. One in the morning around 11, then around 430 and last around 7pm. This morning those 3 are all fluffed up running around the bator. I have no more pips! I'm getting worried nobody else is going to hatch now.

    So... What would you do? Leave the babies in there and keep waiting? Take them out and candle eggs?

    Thank you!

    I should also add that last week, one of the Windows on the top of the bator fell out when I placed lid down to candle before lockdown, so the temp got down to 93 for about 14 hours. I am thinking this could cause some late hatchers.

    I would candle them and see if they are moving, but even if you can't see movement, they could still be alive. You should be able to see if they are internally pipped. You might try the float test to see if any of they rock in the water, I wouldn't give up on them yet.
