    Sounds like you're stats are right on. I've got eggs due to hatch today, and nothing's happening with mine yet either. Just remain calm, everything will be fine. If you tap on the top of the 'bator, do you hear them peeping at you? And talk to them...that always gets mine excited. I know it sounds crazy, but it works.

    Actually, your temp might be a degree or 2 low...but that will only cause them to take a little longer to hatch. No biggie...just means you have to be patient a little longer! [​IMG]

    Good luck! [​IMG]

    Be patient. Sometimes they may be a little slow. My fingers are crossed for you.

    Quote:Just hang in there...I've had several hatches in which I didn't see any movement of the eggs nor hear anything. I was just wondering if you had, but it's totally ok if you don't. And where did you hear to turn down the temp? I don't think it hurt them, but you don't need to do that.

    I would just leave it be at this point. I've never heard of turning down the temp during hatch. [​IMG] How do you tell if they're internally pipping without taking them out and candling them....which is the way wrong thing to do. [​IMG]
