    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Day 23 is a little late but the 21 days is only a guide line when it comes to hatching. Have your temps been ok? If they have been on the low side this can delay hatch. Also did you count the day you set as day 1 or after a full 24 hours of incubation?

    Wishing you the very best of luck, I hope you have some action soon :fl

    Enjoy BYC :frow
