    you should wait another 4 days, after a while the eggs start to stink.

    Is it a still-air icubator or do you have a fan in it? The still air can take a little bit longer than the 21 days that is said for icubaion period. I have a still air incubator and one of my chicks hatched out 3 days late, the other was a week late. My second batch of eggs - one hatched out a couple days late again. Just leave the eggs in there. Don't open the incubator for at least a few more days. Like I said, one took a week past the "due date".
