    Hi, day 21 just started but I haven't seen any eggs moving at all yet. Is this a bad sign? I thought I'd see rocking by now. Thanx.

    I'm also on day 21 and nothing.

    I've imagined some movement, but I think that it is only my wishful thinking. I'm currently trying to find busy work to do around the house to keep me away from the incubator! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Right now I'm telling myself it is all my imagination so I will leave the 'bator alone. About 20 minutes ago I "imagined" I heard a peep! [​IMG]

    some people do play music or humm near the bator to get them to move. I would try it. Maybe your temp. was low during part of incubation and this can delay hatch, don't give up. I know it will drive you nuts, try to do other things if you can. (I know you can't, I can't and I am only on day 19, lol.)
