    I am new to incubating chickens but I have had chickens for a couple of years now! My eggs are on lock down (day 19) and I just recently noticed the eggs moving but no piping yet! Just wondering what the moving around means? Are they getting into position to hatch or are they piping through the interior of the shell?

    I would say they are getting their act together.
