    Am I doing something wrong? Everything is correct, the eggs are all alive, or should I wait more?

    They usually wont start to pip until the 21st day. And could sometimes take longer than that. It just really depends on several different things such as temp and humidity. But they will generally start on day 21. Good luck with you're hatch!!

    Lol yeah, don't give up a day early! If you have no pips by like.... day 24, then you can start to worry. Just let them be, don't open the top. Sometimes on Day 20, you can hear them peeping in the egg, or see the eggs wobble a bit every once in a while as the chick adjusts itself to pip. Good luck!
