    If they were all set at the same time, I would go ahead and candle them, if you haven't already. If you don't see any movement, you can pip a small hole in the end of the egg to check for movement that way. It is possible they are just taking their time, but I doubt it. Hope I'm wrong. Good luck [​IMG]

    I am guessing you are done. I have never had any hatch that many days later. Assuming monday was 21 you are now on day 25 not likely if you are not seeing anything.

    Oh sorry! The air sac end definitely!! If you pip the other end and the chick is still alive, you would almost surely kill it!
