    [​IMG] Im really worried!

    I have a still air bator with 2 eggs. And the temp and humidity have all been good. I have had them on lock-down since day 18. Today was day 21 and I dont see any movement. How long should I wait before I check/candle the eggs??

    The last time i candeled was on day 17 and everything seemed normal.

    The temp is at 101.5 and the humidity is getting down to 70%.

    What is the latest hatch that u guys have had??

    I'll update if I see pips or if they hatch.

    PRAY PLEASE!!! (This will be my first succesful hatch)

    Hope you hatch but I would think temp should be closer to 100.

    My Seramas came on day 21 and 22 - so far. They are supposed to take 19 days. I've been told that 19-22 days is normal so you probably still have time. I don't think those little dudes have a calendar in there. After all, my daughter was 3 weeks late, so they might be sometimes too.
