    If your temps have been slightly low then your eggs could hatch out a couple of days late. Right now I have eggs under a broody just starting to pip on day 24. try not to worry too much, and REALLY try not to keep taking them out of the bator to look at them. It's important to keep their humidity up so it's best to try to just leave them alone and let them do their thing...

    Quote:that is what I want to know. I have had "hatches" where they make it into lockdown but then die. Makes me so frustrated! But you have to try try try again. [​IMG]

    OP- Sorry if they don't hatch. Hows your humidity and have you heard in chirping or seen the eggs rocking at all?
