    Well I looked in the incubator first thing I did when I got up, but none of the chicks have hatched or pipped yet, I check again a few hours ago and still nothing. Then I went by the incubator and I hear a little "PEEP!" I looked in but still nothing so I walked by again about 10 minutes ago and I hear another "PEEP!" I figured out it was one of the Delware eggs peeping, it still hasn't pipped yet, but hopefully we'll have some chicks tomorrow, I can't wait! Wish us luck and keep you fingers crossed!

    Thanks so much,
    Sophia

    Only one hatched...the Delawear chick. I'm not sure why the others didn't hatched they looked perfectly fine. I only candled them on day 7 and 14 and then again on day 23 when they didn't hatch. Most of the egg was dark like there was a chick in it, the temperature stated at 99.5F constantly and the humidy was fine too. I guess just some things aren't ment to be. But since this little guy is lonley I might get some chicks from Salem Feed and Grain when they get them in. How long should I leave the eggs in the incubator before I know they defiently aren't going to hatch. Because this lady on another forum had eggs that were suppose to hatch but she kept them in here incubator 2 more weeks and they did...maybe that was only a one time thing. Hopefully I'll have better luck next time!
