Today is day 23, Ive incubated 9 eggs, One hatched on day 21. I did the float test today on the others and they floated correctly, though II didnt see any movement from them. Do I leave them in the incubator a few more days or is it safe to see what happened to them.

Although unusual, I've heard of eggs hatching on day 25. It can be the result of cooler temperatures (More likely eggs held and hatched in cooler weather) or the incubator's temperature being a bit low.
If they are going to hatch I would expect to see something shortly. Good luck.

I am Guessing you did the float test correctly and being you seen no movement and the eggs are 23 days---I would discard them. How is the one that hatched? Did you take it out the incubator soon after it hatched or you waited a couple days??

Its 2 days old, I took it out after 24 hours. Im assuming I did the float test correctly. I placed the egg in warm water and waited for it to settle and then looked for movement.
