    Given that chicken eggs hatch at around 21 days I would say that they didn't make it. You can still wait a couple more days if you want, but the chances are slim to none. Have you candled them at all since they've been incubated? They might have been infertile to begin with.

    Yes I 've checked them there is something in them but I don't have much hope for them , I have 5 left and only one is rocking its been rocking for 2 days it s cracked and almost looks bruised from the inside out, no pip but definitely moving i'm wondering if I should help it.
    21 days is a guide line so I've been informed and some can go up to 25 days.
    I'm really only concerned with the one that's moving as I think the others haven't made it.

    If it was me, I would hold on to the egg for as long as possible but the chick coming out (if any) will have a high chance of being weak and sickly. Wish you the best![​IMG]

    I have had this issue before, if none of them have piped you can candle them and see what's going on...

    I have had 20+ eggs in the bator, rocking and rolling and only one hatched, its an awful thing but its all a learning experience, I know you probably don't want to hear this but clean it out, go back over what you did, temp and humidity and such and adjust and try again.. I almost gave up after 3 very poor hatches... It will get better once you figure out what works best..

    Quick question: How many days do you have to wait before candling eggs?

    I can usually see something within 3-4 days but NEVER remove eggs until day 10
