    I feel your pain...the wait game is HORRIBLE!!! I thought I was going to lose my mind with my last batch. Did you candle them to see if they pipped internally?

    On the MN prairie.
    Don't panic. The 21 days, is an approximate time, not necessarily when they will hatch. Do some reading here - you will see plenty of posts talking about chicks hatching as late as Day 24. If your temperature was a little low, they will be a little later. Just relax, and wait. That's all you can do, really. If they're peeping, you know they're still alive. DO NOT open the incubator to candle, check, or do anything else with them. You need to keep it closed to keep the humidity up.

    I agree, I would just let them be. As far as candling...I know many people who open the incubator due to multiple hatches, or check for internal pips, but then again they are pros and have been doing it FOREVER and know what they are doing. Me, being more of a newbie I would just wait and see what happens within the next day or 2. At least you are hearing peeps..I never heard any until I had an external pip...
