    I am starting day 20 today. No external pips yet. Getting impatient.....keep checking the eggs every 5 minutes...need someone else to keep me company. Anyone hatching?

    I know the feeling. The wait is unbearable!
    I just hatched out about 30 Silkies and mine always seem to start pipping on Day 21 (if you count the day you set the eggs as Day 0).
    Good luck on your hatch!!!
    And do post pics!!!!!
