Remind me what's the longest I might have to wait

    It's Day 22 on 8 Silkie eggs.
    Nothin's happenin'

    Somehow that's the way I think it's gonna go, although I don't know why I feel that way since my last hatch was pretty darn good.

    But my question is: how long do I just keep leaving them before giving up? Day 24? Day 25?

    And, no, I didn't candle, so I don't know what was what anytime after I put them in...The temperature and humidity were fine through Day 18. On Day 19 I had a temp spike due to the hatcher being in the sun.

    Nothing else of any note. Eggs were shipped and came beautifully packed.

    Me? I'd wait until day 24, then candle one to see if there's movement or if it's a clear. I hope they're just taking their time. [​IMG]

    Thank you....
    That's kinda what I thought, but I needed corroboration.

    I'll let you know...
