    If it's only day 20 what are you worried about? Mine usually pip within 12hrs of when I set them and start hatching right around day 21. Since I set them in the evening that usually means they start to pip the morning of the 21st day and hatch through that night. If they pip on day 20 (like mine just did) then I assume there was a temp problem (which there was) and worry extra about them hatching properly.
