    Just have to say this hatch was my best ever.

    I set 41 chicken eggs, and so far I have 31 happy fuzzy butts in the brooder plus one more cheeping in the incubator.

    Question is this: how long should I wait for the remaining eggs? Today is day #22.

    You have done well! That's a 78% hatch which is very good.I would go ahead and candle the remaining eggs.You will likely see movement if the chicks are alive. You may also see where they have pipped thru the internal membrane. Give them another day or 2 and then candle again. Good luck and hope you get some more babies. [​IMG]
