    I have 11 eggs on the 20th day. Most of them are wobbling but no sign of pipping yet. Could there be something wrong? Is 70% Humidity too high in a still air incubator?

    Just saw this...wobbling is a good sign...they may be trying to internally pip or change positions. many people hatch at 70%.

    It can take hours and hours after pip to hatch. I think my longest one yet was 28 hours. So, be patient!!!

    They also rest between bouts of being active.

    Hope by now you are waking up to a whole bunch of fuzzy butts!
