Later tonight will make day 20 for my eggs, what should i be expecting? Idk if any are internally pipped because i have had them in lockdown since day 18 and I'm to scared to open the incubator and candle them because i don't want to possibly mess something up and they not hatch, i seen one wiggle earlier today, do they internally pip day 19, external pip day 20 and hatch on day 21?

Yes i did, they were all alive. Woke up this morning and checked them, no external pip. But i don't know about internal.

Another day won’t hurt to wait before checking them. It’s still early. Hopefully you’ll see some pips today! :fl

Do i need to candle tonight to see if they are at least internally pipped?
Just wait...it's not called 'lock-down' for no reason. ;)
I don't know why folks think they need to candle for an internal pip.
If you hear peeping then you know it's internally pipped,
then you have to wait until it's ready to externally pip.
Leave them be.
