    Today is day 20 and theres no peeping or even a small pip. Yesterday day 19 I candled one to see if it was dead but not it was moving. I know im not supposed to open the bator but I think people say that because loss of humidity right? well the humidity didn't even decreased by one it stays the same because I don't open the whole bator I only open the window so theres no problem. But why are they taking so long!!!

    If both temp and humidity has been perfect pips usually start happening the eve of day 20. That is not writtien in stone. Patience!
