How long do you leave unhatched eggs?

A slightly cooler than optimum incubator can slow the process down to 22-24 days, sometimes 25. Since you have one that hatched on day 22, I would wait until day 23 and water test them.

Keeping this in view, should I remove unhatched eggs?

Quick Tip: NEVER REMOVE UNHATCHED EGGS FROM A NEST UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY 200% SURE THE NEST IS ABANDONED, OR ALL OTHER EGGS HATCHED OVER THREE DAYS EARLIER.

Likewise, what happens to unhatched eggs? The unhatched egg will eventually be broken through activity in the nest—parents and eaglets moving around. The egg, like the shells of the hatched eaglets, will eventually become invisible within the nest.

Then, what happens if eggs don't hatch after 21 days?

If eggs get too dry, too hot or too cold, at any point during incubation this can stop the chicks development. It's a good idea to open eggs that haven't hatched after 21-22 days. You will see if there are any partially developed embryos; if not the eggs weren't fertile to begin with.

How do you know if eggs are hatching?

Hold the egg carefully between thumb and forefinger over a flashlight, candle or bare light bulb. Do this about three or four days after the start of incubation. A fertilized egg will appear to have small spiderweb type veins inside the shell when it is 'candled'.
