    I'm at Day 20 of incubating eggs under two broody hens. The eggs have been moved around more than usual due to some odd circumstances but not an excessive amount. My problem is that I'm on Day 20 and there's no pips and I'm not really hearing anything from them. Any answers?

    One to three more days you might hear pips on the 21st day.

    Just let it play out....I figure anywhere from 19 to 23 days.
    There are a lot of variables that can slow or speed the incubation.
