    [​IMG] . I'm sorry I can't help you with your incubating questions but at that stage I personally would not move the eggs.
     
  3. [​IMG] From Texas............ No I would not move the eggs and if none of the eggs are pipped by day 23 chances are they will not hatch. My eggs almost always hatch right on day 21 and then there are always a few stragglers on day 22 day I pull all chicks that have hatched out of locked down incubator, any remaining unhatched eggs I test to see if good or bad with a glass of warm water... good eggs sink & bad eggs float. The floaters get tossed out and the sinkers I will give a day or 2 more to see if they will hatch, most of time they don't hatch.

    Wouldn't touch them. I would leave them for a couple more days and then consider them duds.
