    Mine have hatched on day 27 before.

    Why? Because the temps where 5 degrees to low, and I wasn't able to tell

    (bad thermometer) until lockdown, when I got a better thermometer. [​IMG]

    Low temps will slow down the development in the egg. Sadly the one I

    had hatch was way to weak to make it. Good luck with your eggs!
