This morning is Day 22. One out of 12 hatched this morning at 7:30. I don't see any signs yet of any others starting to pip. How long should I wait for the others before giving up on them?

I would wait at least 3 more days. If you had low temps you could be having a late hatch. If you want you can candle the eggs and if there is movement and what the air cell looks like. See if you can tell if the chicks have pipped any of the air cells.

Let us know what you see.
