    Did you stop turning them and increase the humidity?

    Did you candle to make sure they were growing? If so, I would guess your temp is too low. What kind of incubator are you using (forced fan or still air) and what is your temp reading?

    What kind of incubator are you using, what was the temp for the first 18 days?

    Your temp for still air is low, which is probably why they are late. Still air should be 101-102 for still air. Give them time, they are probably just a little behind. [​IMG]
