    I once had about 8 eggs under a broody and they only started hatching on day 22. Don't worry yet! Was your temperature spot on throughout the incubation period? If it was a bit too cool it would've delayed development, resulting in delayed hatch.

    Oo just looked and one has pipped! Yippie!
    I thought I'd totally ruined them as the 6 eggs went in a week later than the first batch. Then they all got totally used as footballs when the one and only chick to hatch got out!
    What with that and different humidity etc I really thought I wouldn't be getting any other chicks!
