Our Royal Palm hen "Tasha" was discovered with a nest of 17 eggs on Aug 23rd. Sometime within the 28 following days, counts were as high as 22 eggs in the nest, so obviously she wasn't done laying when we found her, though she was on and off the nest. On Saturday Sept 22, poults began to hatch and she was out of the nest with 7 healthy babes on Sunday the 23rd; a couple had died half-hatched or just after hatching. We put the rest in the incubator. One more hatched on Monday the 24th. We candled the rest and it seems there are 7 left with babies in them; they are still in the incubator. How long should I wait before I give up on these last 7? I have done the float test in the past and it doesn't work for me: Eggs that look "dead" actually have healthy chicks in them, so please don't recommend that method. Other suggestions most welcome though!
