    I only hatched once so far and I left mine untill 24 and had two pip and hatch between 23-24. I candled the others and no movement was seen so I called it quits. Im sure others with better knowlege will give better idea.

    I still recommend you leave them since your incubating temps were low but they are your eggs.

    Good luck whatever you decide.

    I would say your actual temp is in the 98.5-99 degree range. Time for a new thermometer.

    I agree, Matt. I think my bator is a tad warm, my hatches are a day early, or very early day of hatch. Hmmm, maybe that's pretty good!

    Don't open the bator, you'll get more, I promise.
