    Large breeds of chickens like the Giants, Shamo, Cochins, and Saipans can take a day or two longer sometimes. So dont give up too soon and discard the eggs.

    Would Austrolorps qualify as a large breed? I have 5 eggs in thr incubator right now. One hatched on day 21 and the other 4 are still in there and we are ending day 22 tonight. Any hope that the other 4 still might hatch? I can't see any obvious movement tonight but I did see the eggs move just slightly last night. How long should I wait?
