    First time peachick hatcher here. These are my own eggs from my trio - I had 100% fertility on them.

    I'm on day 30... I must have done SOMETHING right as I have one successfully hatched - so far it looks to be white one too! [​IMG]

    Not sure about the other 4 - I know there was good development and movement on day 25, but no pips or noise or anything.

    Temps are steady, humidity 70-75%

    How long to give them before I give up hope??

    Give them a couple more days. Peachicks are notorious for getting to hatch day then just dying. Give a listen to the egg to see if there's any tapping. Then candle to see if you see movement or if it looks like the chick has moved into the airsac....
