    We started our eggs in the incubator on January 14th, but the little peeps haven't come out yet. I candled them quickly this morning and at least one of them was still moving. We thought they would have hatched by now. Do you think they will hatch? Is it unusual for them to go past their hatch date?

    Mine hatched on day 26, give it some time, but if they don't pass on the 28th day, you should take them out.
