It's me again....I know, those darn newbies with the repetitive questions..... But here goes--I've read several people saying they have had chicks hatch out as late as Day 25, but I'm curious under what circumstances do you wait that long? I set 16 shipped Ameraucana eggs (all the way from Washington state & I'm in AL). On Day 18 candling, 4 appear to be infertile--pretty much clear like when I set them. 4 have hatched--cute little fuzz butts But...what about the other 8 eggs? As of 2:30pm today, we are on Day 23, and none are showing any signs of life, at least that I can tell. Do most of you who wait until Day 25 only do this if they have actually pipped or just wait regardless?? Thanks for the input! edited title: "no" signs of life....oops!
