    Hi. Don't have chickens yet and already a problem. Bought a dozen eggs from a reputable breeder and bought a new incubator. I followed the directions to hatch eggs precisely and It's been 23 days today and no hatch. How long should I wait till I give up?? What could have gone wrong?

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    If you go to the hatching and incubation thread, post there and include the type of incubator you had, what thermometers and hygrometers you used to check it, and how often you turned the eggs.
