    For those of you whose eggs don't seem to be hatching on time. Don't give up to soon. I had 13 eggs set and 2 piped and hatched on day 22 and now on day 24 another egg has just pipped this morning. All eggs were set at the same time.

    Once, I thought my hatch was finished. I cleaned out my incubator. I had a small plastic bag on the patio with shells and a couple unhatched eggs. A few hours later I happened to go out there and heard peeping. An egg had hatched on the patio. It was not even pipped when I cleaned out the incubator. This was during the summer, and the chick was fine. Just goes to show you to leave them in there a little longer.
