hi all,
I am on day 23 of my chicken incubation. no signs of pips but did candle and 3/4 look like they may have internally pipped, still show some veining, and seem to be on track. I bought these eggs from someone new for the first time and they seem unusually large but showed good development. Thoughts on viability of my hatch?

That seems a little long doesn't it? Are you sure they're chicken eggs? I think if your temp is also a bit low it will take longer. I've experienced what I think was a slightly high temp and my recent batch hatched on days 19-20.

From my experience no good news for you... Chick's will die in shell and one's that hatch will be week and letargic and died soon that was my experience.. chick's that hatch on day 21,22,23 was ok every day after day 23 comes with dead or reformed week chick's.. but good luck 😉
