    I posted this in the newbie section and decided to move it here.

    I am new to incubating. I have been around chickens most of my life, but recently decided to try and hatch a few. I have a hova-bator with a turner and a little giant with a turner. Today is either day 20 or 21 on my first 5 eggs I am incubating. I also have about 105 bobwhite eggs in to separate stages about a week apart in the other incubator. Yesterday I noticed a little movement from one of the chicken eggs but no pips this morning. How long should I give them if I see nothing by tomorrow evening? I stopped turning them Friday.

    24 hrs or longer after the pip hole on each egg.
