    Today is day 21 but my eggs are not pipping or chirping, and seem to be rocking less and less. We recently moved from the coast to the high desert and I'm worried I've messed up the humidity. Can anyone tell me how big the air sack should be at this point? I candled one egg and can see the air bubble But I'm worried they are too small....

    How are things today ?.. I have had it take upto 25 days to get some to hatch . If you moved them mid incubation then you can expect them to be a lil late...

    I'm on day 23 with some eggs, had 2 hatch 2 days ago, 1 yesterday. Had another batch that was due today finish up last night(day 20) and they have been in the same bator [​IMG] . Went pull the last 4 eggs that were on day 23 and candled, they are still alive so there they stay. If you candled, did you see movement? If your temps were a little low that can also delay your hatch....
