No don't give up, still one more day to go, after which I always give them another couple of days in case you temp. was a little off.

Are you saying that you're not seeing any pips or rocking, or that you've candled and haven't seen anything? I would not panic until maybe day 23, but if you candled before you put them in the hatcher/stopped turning, and you saw movement, then leave them be for a few more days.
