Soooo, I broke some rules as it just reached the 22 day mark and I had no pips yet. I could hear some chirps, but have seen no movement for a few days. I pulled a few out to candle bc I didn't have pips and my humidy was at 70% so I felt like it would be safe. The eggs I candled were still alive and some had internally pipped, but some of the air cells were so big that it was almost to the bottom of the egg on the dipped side. I never see candling pics this late and don't know if that is typical. Should I be worried at all that they can't move to hatch if this happens? Is that typical? I'm wondering if my humidy was too low the first 18 days as I used the dry method, but it was never below 28% or higher than 40%. Just would like some opinions bc I'm sure everyone knows how worrisome this stage is for us!!
