    our brinsea incubator has 12 eggs inside, some look like they are moving and rocking, how long will they move before they start to hatch?
    temp 99.6
    humidity 66%-68%
    no pips yet.. is this normal???
    What should we be looking for?

    It depends. If you started counting on the day you set (set = day 1 etc) then you are a day early & it will be another day.

    It also depends on the temps - little low = little slow.

    But it can be save bet that it will be soon!

    My first hatch I had jumpers 2 days before they pipped. Its fun to watch!
