    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. Glad you joined us. If you think it'll hatch, it won't hurt to give it a little more time. I usually try to wait until day 25 before giving up just in case even with eggs that I'm not sure about. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    I agree, leave it for a few more days. It is probably best to not open the incubator at all during the last 3 days of incubation.

    You're braver than me to be hatching from eggs. Hope the remaining four eggs turn into chicks. Good luck and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]
