    I think day 21 was yesterday. The first one started hatching very late Sunday night and into the morning. Five hatched throughout the day Monday including some 4 araucanas and 1 silkie. Early this morning Tuesday one of our giant blue cochin eggs finally hatched. I ordered 14 of these eggs off ebay. The others are mine. Is there any hope that more of the cochin eggs will hatch if they are fertile? I guess I am asking how many days can a hatch last? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I've heard some say that if the temp was a little low, it could take a couple extra days. Give it till day 23 anyway. [​IMG]
