    I have been incubating eggs at home. Today is 23 days. I had one egg hatch on the early morn of day 22.So I seem to hear pecking with a stethoscope through the incubator. What could be the hold up?

    Welcome to BYC! They should hatch soon. Are you positive this is day 23? If they do not hatch within 12 hours peel a little shell off without injuring the membrane and see if that helps.

    It sounds like your temps might have been low.
