    I've had 3 eggs to hatch in the last 48 hours, latest one pipped yesterday and hatched last night. . It is now day 25 and I still have 3 eggs left to go. in the past 24 hours I've noticed no wiggling & there are no pips. How long should I leave them?

    If they don't stink, leave them for another day...were your temps low? 25 days is a little longer than normal.

    Temps at 99.6, others hatched on day 22 & 23. These last ones seem pretty still, they don't stink.

    No, they didn't make it :(
    I wonder if when the other chicks hatched if they didnt bump those eggs around too much?

    I'm sorry [​IMG]. I'm no expert...if I had to guess, I'd just say they were "early quitters," for whatever reason.... I know it isn't much consolation, but if you had 6 eggs, you did get a 50% hatch rate. Not too shabby.....

    I started out with 41 eggs and right now I'd take anything above 0%, but it isn't looking too good [​IMG] ....

    I just noticed your new here, well, welcome to BYC [​IMG]
