    Quote:I've had lots of late hatches. Day 25 seems to be my magic number for those.

    If you search around you'll see that a lot of us have some late and even early hatches. Kind of like expecting a baby to be born exactly on it's due date.

    Make sure your humidity is high enough without being too high.

    Then walk away.

    I've seen so many posts where people decide that the hatch isn't going to happen and open up eggs only to kill the chicks that just were not ready yet.

    Here's one of the best sheets to follow on this site.

    I think you'll get some chicks out of this hatch, but next time just follow her lead and you won't even have to stress.

    BTW

    Don't stress!

    I did the floated test . They all floated end up. None sank. This good or bad? Will leave another few days [​IMG]
