    I set eggs I got from a lady up the street have no clue what they are lol she good me the hen had been on them for 3 day so I counted the three day set my due date today is day 20 . the first week my bator quit heating they were on 70 for about 12 hrs. well after candling a few times I candled all of them at lockdown and moved them off of the turners. only 1 was not developed. I can see movement in them. Should I be worried none have pipped ? I don't know what to do are they late because it was on 70 for about a half a day ? what do Yall think ?

    probably a little late due to your temps. SIT on your hands, dont touch and let mother nature take her course. If you saw movement, you should have little ones within a day or so

    Best of luck!!!! and dont open that bator

    Im thinking if they hatch it will be late because of the drops in temps you had for that period of time. Hatch days are day 21-not 21 so I would think day 22 would wind up being the hatch day for you becasue of the heat issue. good luck
