I borrowed a styrofoam battor from a friend. He said it would take approx. 28 days. On day 21 I had some pip and hatch and a few more on day 22. Today is 24 I dont see or hear anything going on, and still have alot in bator. Started with 31 eggs and 6 hatched. The more I read the more I understand somethings that I may have done wrong. I like the idea of cardboard egg carton, it would make things soooo much eaiser. So...should I wait a few more days? I have not tried candling any yet, I was afraid of handling them too much. Or just give up on these and start some more I get 4 to 6 a day from my hens now.
