Started with 5 eggs in incubator. Candled on day 10, 2 good and removed 3 not growing. 1 hatched on day 21 but its now day 23 and nothing from other one. Should i leave it be until day 25 or call it now? A little background: this is my second hatching in my incubator, hatched 5 of 5 the first time. I have some kind of old hen i inherited from my mother in law that has tried unsuccessfully several times to hatch, for some reason even separated from the flock with a big roomy nest has managed to always break all the eggs. This hatch was going to go to her...

I tried uploading a pic but can't figure it out. Anyway i just candled and i have what looks to be a good air pocket and the rest of the egg appears very dark. I don't see anything moving.

I have a good air pocket with the rest of the egg being mostly dark. If i slowly turn the egg i can see veins.

Ok just did the float test and it was for sure a "low float" like maybe just the air pocket out of water! There may have been slight movement or maybe it was just my imagination because i want so bad for it to hatch! I was just reading that so have had healthy chicks hatch as late as 27-28. Should i just wait and see? My nerves can't handle this.lol
