    How long should I wait for these to hatch? I candled towards the end & all were alive other than 1 was a bit questionable.

    What should I do???? Should I wait a couple more days or do you think they quit right at the end???? [​IMG] Thanks

    DO NOT OPEN THE BATOR, they will hatch on there own, just give it time. what has your temp been at? and humidty? it can take up to 24 days sometimes, if the temp was off just alittle.

    The 3 eggs are at day 24 with no signs of pipping....what should I do? Wait a couple more days? or figure they just didn't make it???

    Take them out and candle them for movement.

    Yes, definately candle them. If they're still alive, leave 'em be. If not, toss and start over. Every egg does not always hatch, I wish they did but for whatever reason they just don't.

    They were all dead. 2 looked like they just about made it & the other 1 that was suspicious quit maybe halfway thru.

    Thanks everyone.
