    are you using a hen or an incubator? if an incubator- depending on the type, some people increase the humity and most have stopped turning eggs a few days ago.
    I have chicks hatching now, they are a bit early, but doing good. if you make a cheeping noise into your incubator, you may hear them calling back.you should see little cracks in one area (poking out not in) where the chick is starting it's external pip.
    then later, pipping and zipping if all goes well.
    if under a hen, you may see little heads poking out from under the hen.
    you may or may not find egg shells.
