    there are 16...but my "helpful"nieces turned off the 'bator twice...once for a whole dang day...so if we just get one, it'd be a miracle.....[​IMG]

    Quote:Well, with the bator being shut off a couple times I would wait in till at LEAST day 25-26 just to be 100% sure.

    Usally chicks that dont hatch by day 23 arent going to, but with the drop of temp they could very well be late !!

    Did you candle after the power issue ?

    These boogers are taking their own sweet time....I'm gonna have a heart attack waiting.

    Ya heard that a "watched pot doesn't boil"? --Apparently, a watched egg doesn't hatch!
