I'm at day two with no sign of hatching. Do I wait longer or just start over? Thanks
Well how many days have they been in the incubator.
Going on 30 for ducks and 23 for chickens.
did you candle them?---I guess I'm trying to ask if they are developing correctly.
I've had chickens hatch on day 25. Never incubated ducks. Of course the hatch on day 25 was after losing power for four days during a snowstorm. As it has already been recommended, candle them to see if your chicks are still alive. If so, give them a couple more days.
I did. I kept all that looked good. I have done this many times. Never had a hole group not hatch. Very odd.
It could be that your temps are low. That would delay the hatch.
I would agree with the temp thing but it stays pretty tight at 95 to 96.
That is too low. For one with a fan, you need 99, add about two degrees for still air.
