    Don't worry. Some hatch on Day 20, but some breeds in particular seem to take longer, like the BBS Orps I hatch. The last two hatches, I had only 2 out of an entire batch pip on Day 20, but the rest didn't come till Day 21 and 22, even. Seems they rock on Day 18 or 19, then right before the pip, they take a long rest, sort of the calm before the storm. Even the Delawares, who normally pop out early, took their time.
