    I am incubating 22 eggs and on Thursday 8 hatched and yesterday 7 hatched. Today there's a couple that are slowly poking out of there shells. I am thinking I did a pretty good job for my first time hatching chicks.

    Congratulations on your hatched chicks :clap
    You have done a great job :D

    Any more hatched yet? 3 days is quite a while for them to be hatching, you may have some hot and cold spots in your incubator. Did you double check temps with another known to be correct thermometer? If it's running at the correct temp and you have hot and cold spots you can move your eggs around the incubator when you candle to counteract this.
