    What? Don't open them! It's only day twenty, don't open anything!! There's nothing in the world you could do if you found a dead chick inside one, but you'll have guaranteed it'll never survive if it was alive. Leave them alone and let them do their thing and hope for the best!! Good luck!!

    Be patient and give it a couple of days, maybe they are resting!
    What breed may I ask?

    Yes, LEAVE THEM ALONE!!!!!!!



    I'm at the tail end of day 20, and I just *barely* had two pip. The others haven't shown any signs of hatching, and they all looked good on lockdown. Don't touch them til at least day 23-24.

    Quote:Pure Puertorican whats called criolla or known and developed by Alberto Betancourt EXtremely famous game breeder. so they are game brids that have true Spanish game fowl blood with true cuban gamefowl blood and irish gamefowl blood refined so much they came out with supreme birds. But note these arent for any illegal activities just no one i know that breeds in connecticut has these breeds and if im the first i can make me and the family some very needed extra cash....lol

    I know it's hard to wait, those last few days can be killer and it's especially hard when there's little or no movement. We're pulling for you here though, don't lose hope just yet! [​IMG]

    Absolutely don't touch them.When they are at the end of incubation they don't have much room to move in any case.

    AND let us know the outcome.
