    The norm is for a hatch to happen on day 21, they start pipping the end of day 20. Now, temps and humidity play a big roll in controlling hatches, so if the temps and humdiity have been off meaning high or low you can expect a hatch to happen from day 19 thru 25. That's why we always say control your temps and humidity at the best ranges and things will usually go right on schedule.
