    I have one cuckoo maran boy ( I think) that hatched on day 22.
    2 more in the incubator and it's now day 24. Do you think there is still a chance?? I m not sure they are alive. Shame.
    He is now helping me type this!

    I would candle now that it's day 24. If they have not internally pipped by now, I don't think they are alive.

    I'm sorry you only had one hatch!

    They may have shrink wrapped. Did you keep track of your humidity at the end?
