    Okay its day 22 and nothing [​IMG] no peeping, pipping, or zipping for my two polish eggs ?? Hmmm the temp in the incubator did go down a few degrees but not past 90,, I hope I didnt kill them??? [​IMG] do you think theyre gonna be okay and still hatch just late??

    And how long should I wait like how many days before I should go in there and help them??

    I wait until day 25 for any late hatchers. Sometimes they hatch late, sometimes the remaining eggs don't hatch, but enough of 'em have for me to not give up until late on day 25.

    Good luck!!!

    It won't hurt to wait a couple more days and see if anything happens. I've almost given up on a hatch or two only for the chickies to start hatching that night or the next day. Some are just late bloomers [​IMG]

    the lower the temperature the longer it can take to hatch . . .
