    It is day 19 and no sign of pipping so I'm wondering if they start pipping later in the evening or day 20?

    Hatching depends on so many variables that I would not worry about it too much.
    If NONE have pipped so far, just wait.
    My Silkie eggs "usually" pip on day 21 (if you count egg-set day as day zero), but they can pip as late as day 23.
    Hopefully, your humidity was not too high during the first 18 days; everything should be fine.
    Did you candle the eggs just before lockdown?


    (I edited to add correct dates.)

    You still have time.
    It's not Day 21 yet.
