Sorry, sweets, but it may already be too late. If you found
the egg and took a long time to find all your information,
the egg probably could have gotten cold. If you cannot have
the incubater on ALL the time for at least three weeks for it
to hatch, it really will not hatch. Eggs have to be kept warm
all the time.
I am so sorry, but these are the facts of life. Bird parents
go through the same thing. It was a good try, though. You
might need to ask your mom to help you, and if she can't,
then I don't know what to tell you, dear.
I hope you are not too heartbroken.
Hugs to you
