    So I went to check on the incubator, I found that the one that had pipped had hatched. I was positive that none of the others had pipped, so I opened it to candle the eggs. None of the air cells had been pipped:hit. So I have a lone chick in the incubator. It is day 21 today, I will leave the incubator running until day 25, then I am giving up on them.
    :hit

    Still early..No need to panic yet. Provide a mirror for single chick in the Brooder. It will be okay a couple of days alone. Stop opening incubator to Candle..Remove the hatched to Brooder and Lockdown.

    Can you get a photo or two of an unhatched egg.
    Shine the light in the air cell while taking the picture.

    Beautiful!
    Buff Orpingtons are my favorites! I just recently moved 4 Millie Fluer D’uccles out to their new coop!

    Hope everything goes well!
