    Today is day 20 and they have not started to pip the shell and I have heard no sounds coming from the eggs or seen any egg movements. Should I be worried? I candled at day 17 and I could definitely see movement in the eggs.

    Be patient. Until we dialed in the heat on the incubator, all of our hatches were late, anywhere from 22-25 days for some of the eggs.

    They're either going to hatch or not, messing with them now could have more detrimental effects than good.

    Good luck!
