    As of Thursday, I have 29 bouncing baby bobwhites. 3 eggs did not hatch so I left them in the incubator. It's now Monday evening - over 4 days past the others hatching and still none of the remaining have pipped. However when I listen closely, I can hear a peeping. 4 days late seems like a long time. What should I do? Can I do anything to help

    I suggest you just throw those eggs away because there might be something wrong with them. Happy Hatching!

    If you hear peeping, then I would hang on to them. They may just be late bloomers. If they don't plan on coming out of the eggs, they will parish on their own.
