    Wait....

    You just have to wait....

    If you had any days of lower temps during incubation, your hatch will be a day or 2 late. Many have had chicks hatch 4-5 days from hatch date. Don't open the incubator and just be patient.

    Quote:I would check for any pips then open it as quick as you can. One lady suggested putting a damp towel draped over the incubator to help keep the humidity high. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you was to open the bator make sure to have a spray bottle handy with warm water in it and spray once to get the humidity back up then close bator back up and you should have no problem. But only open bator just to add water and nothing else. GOODLUCK!!! [​IMG]

    If it were me I would give them 5 more days just in case cause temp might have not been right up to day 21.
