    I have eggs that i put in lockdown on thursday night. when i candled them they did not fill the egg quite yet, still some room at bottom of egg. they were alive and moving. i did have some temp problems due to our fire going out and house temp dropping severely. So far there are no pips and i havent heard them peeping or anything. They were all alive on thursday. i have not opened incubator. R they just going to be late or is something wrong........of course no one can tell for sure but any advice please

    Mine didn't so much as wiggle until day 20! So don't worry yet...

    It is day 22 for me and my last two just hatched. They are tough cookies, so just relax and watch your humidity. [​IMG]
