    Two of my chicks hatched today on day 22 of incubation and seem happy, but I still have 3 more with no broken shell, not even holes in the incubator. Is it possible they will hatch tomorrow? Should I intervene today, how does this work??? These are Easter egged chicks!!

    I wait for 3 days after the first chick hatches before giving up and calling it done.
