    Ok so my little giant still air was set a 99.5 and should have been 101-102. . I raised the temp to 101 on day 20 when I learned what the correct temp should be. Now at day 24, I did see some eggs moving and could hear a faint peep last night but nothing this morning. No pipping no cracks. How much longer should I wait? Could it be delayed due to lower temp on first 20 days? What should I do now? still in lockdown.

    I'll be honest, I have no idea about the questions you are asking[​IMG]

    The best recommendation I have is to post your question on this forum, these folks are awesome and I'm sure they will be glad to help.

    Wyorp has given you be best place to go for advice, but from what i have read, a lower temp will delay hatching. Personally, I'd just keep things as they are and keep your fingers crossed. I hope that the experts will be able to help you.

    Good luck
