    Unfortunately I'm in the same boat. Day 21 for me. I heard chirping last night and then...nothing. Local eggs too. Not feeling hopeful this time.
    Sorry about the pessimism. I'm usually so positive.
    Good luck on yours!

    Sometimes if the tempature is low by even half a degree, they'll hatch late. I have had a batch hatch on day 24 with a few on day 25 so don't give up yet. Good Luck to the both of you!! [​IMG]

    Thank you. I'm not giving up yet! :)

    @Francischick, I'm a couple of days ahead of you, so you are still definitely on track!

    Waiting for them to hatch and studying for mid-terms I am too old for this stuff.
