    I don't think that you have anything to be worried about. Keep us up to date. Oh, and you know since you posted, pictures are a requirement once they hatch right? [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm day 21 and no pips either..I did candle..I know [​IMG] But did so for 5 seconds on each egg. They're under a broody, so when she got up I checked them. Mine are all alive, so don't worry if you don't see any movement or pips. They'll hatch when fully ready:hugs

    If your thermometer is not reading true and the temperature is actually a little low the chicks can take a few hours to a couple of extra days to hatch. Are you certain your thermometer is accurate?

    I am also at day 21. This is my first hatch since I was in high school. The big mistake I made was ordering eggs from ebay instead of a local source. Out if 7 only one showed to be viable at 7 days and at day 14 it was still alive but the next time I decided to quickly check (I believe day 16) I could not see into the egg at all as there was a fark lump and the air sac but I no longe could identify anything else.


    I do not see anything..the egg isn't moving and I guess I am just going to have to wait and see.

    Thank you. I hope everyone has a good hatch!
