    i have a batch of eggs in the bator they were day 21 on tuesday BUT i had terrible temp and humidity problems in the early first week and half until i moved them to a more stable bator. they seemed to be developing on track but still no pips as of now how long do you wait before you call it a bad batch or a no hatch ?

    I have heard day 23 completed is the cut off. After that, it's probably not going to happen.

    If your temps & humidity were off I'd wait til day 25. I've had hatches happen on day 25 when the temps were too low.
