    I have a set of eggs that were due to hatch on March 23rd, today is March 29th. I had 2 hatch yesterday and most of the eggs are still alive and have movement.

    My main question is how long do I wait until calling it quits?

    The temps have been a little weird here in Oregon and I know that there was at least one day that my temps were low so that would slow development but I'm not sure if it would really slow it by a week.

    My chicken eggs were due to hatch on the 26th, just a few minutes ago the first one pipped. If they are still moving, you still stand a chance. I'd wait it out a bit longer
