    What kind of bator are you using. Still air require a little higher temp, so if that is what you're using they may be a little late. Just hang in there. Hope they pip soon for you.

    im using the brinsea mini advance. I started turning like 4 days after i started incubating because i forgot to turn it on. Will that effect it and cause a delay?

    No, turning should not affect the hatch unless you forget for a really long time or the entire incubation. I'm not familiar with that bator, so I couldn't comment.

    Don't give up! Wait until day 25 at the very least before you give up.
