If the temp got too low at any time during the incubation the development of the chicks could have been slowed down, causing them to hatch later. I usually chuck the eggs at the end of day 22 because after that chicks can start to hatch with problems that I don't have the time to hand-raise.

If you candle, look into the airsac and see if you can see the chicks beak moving around.
