    Help!!!!! So I am on day 20 of my first incubation. I noticed that the last 3 days my eggs were wobbling like crazy but tonight they seem to have stopped. Should I be worried or is this normal before they begin to pip. Temp is 99.5 and humidity is about 77%.

    I'm new to this, but I would say the wobbling was probably the chicks getting in position.

    Yes all this is quite normal movement is them getting into position for hatching and them doing there internal pip. If you listen very carefully you may here them peeping from inside the egg. They have probably stopped moving because they are resting even getting into position and internal pip takes a lot of hard work for the chick also this time is when they start to absorb the yolk sac. Wishing you the very best of luck with your hatch.:fl
