    Hello! I have 25 shipped hatching eggs in a Little Giant, still air incubator. Yesterday was hatch day, and today, I still have no pipping. All the eggs looked good when I put them on lockdown (but I'm also new to hatching/breeding and still learning) ..... my question is, when do I call it quits? I did lose power two weeks ago for 5 hours, and kept the incubator temperature above 90 (best I could do), using hot water bottles and blankets, until power resumed. Humidity has been right the whole time. Could they possibly be hatching late due to the temp drop, or do you think that is wishfull thinking on my part, and they are no longer Viable. Thank you!

    So I need to post this separately to the link you listed? I'm not good with navigating sites like this. Thanks!

    redsoxs has given you the best place to get some assistance...just click on the link (it's in blue) and you'll be automatically directed to the Incubating & Hatching forum.

    If you would like more tips on using the site, there's a link to some FAQ at the bottom of my post.

    Best of luck to you with your hatch!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
