    Hello Everyone, I am new to the incubator use and have a question.

    On September 8th I put 5 eggs into the incubator to see if they hatch, one did but I still have 4 eggs in the incubator, so my question is how long should the eggs stay in the incubator before I should give up dispose them.

    Thanks everyone

    So right now they are about 33 days old, I would throw them out because it is way past the date they are supposed to hatch, It is true that some eggs do hatch late but it's not going to be as late as 33 days. :)
