    If your temperature in the 'bator was somewhat low, it can delay the hatching. You could post on the incubation threads for advice.

    If you post in incubating & hatching you may get more answers.

    If she's peeping, leave her be. As others have said, low temps can delay hatch. A pip or peep doesn't mean that she is ready be born yet. Keep humidity up to avoid shrink wrapping and you'll be fine.
