    All of my hatches have pipped on day 19- once on day 18. Temps are always perfect, humidity good etc. I have my most expensive eggs in the bator to date and nothing is happening!!!! [​IMG] Granted it is only day 19 and 18 on my bc marans, but couldn't at least one just pip???? These will probably make me wait until day 21. Why do we put ourselves through all this stress?!?!?!

    Unfortunaltely my hatches this year did not turn out very good but its not ganna stop me from trying again next spring.

    It would be soo nice if I could get show quality chicks from a hatchery. [​IMG]

    I have had a few marans eggs hatch a couple days late. Don't give up on day 21! Give it a few more days.
