    If you have a slow hatch like I did last time, let them go to day 25. I still had some hatch day 24 or 25. But if you have a normal hatch and they all seem to hatch around the same day, after 2-3 days I'd shut it down.

    Ok here's a little more info on these particular eggs...My in laws are going out of town and decided at the last minute they were bringing them over. I already have my own in the bator and can't up the temp or I risk my own hatch. The first night 2 were broken by the time they got here one of the little guys held on until last night, still had a big yolk sac attached too, the cracked one stank so BAD I had to light a candle to cover up the smell in the house it was not fertile, so I candled and found another infertile one the remaing 4 have a large mass but I can't see any movement and they stink too(I think) maybe remaining smell of that one I don't know. So now what should I do?[​IMG]
