Don't give up yet! Some chicks might just take a little longer to hatch! I usually get rid of my unhatched eggs around day 26...before they get stinky!

Hope that you have a few more!

I head for every 1 degree below 99.5 they can be delayed one day, or early one day if it is 1 degree above 99.5. You might want to candle them too just in case and break them open in a plastic bag before you throw them away.

I wait till day 24 and then crack them open. Like i just posted on another thread, trying picking up the egg and wiggling it gently. You may be able to hear peeping. On day 21 i had no pips so i picked each egg up and gently shook it. I heard peeping in every egg and a couple hours later all had pipped and zipped their eggs. So you may want to try that. In a day or so, if nothing happens that crack them open and see where you incubating went wrong.
