    Day 21 was on Friday and chick 1 hatched at 445pm. Chick 2 hatched on day 22 around 11am. Its now 5pm on day 23 and there are 4 eggs left that are warm and still wriggling. At what point do I give up on them?

    With your hatch, I'd wait til day 24-25.

    Some hatches do take a lot of patience. I've never waited that long but heard plenty of success/good ending stories from waiting that long. But I'd make sure the eggs are at least moving or peeping though.
