    SO new at this but am wondering.....
    how long will the egg move around before a pip??
    We have seen them moving but no pip...
    temp steady the whole time 99.6
    humidity first 18 44%
    lockdown 66%

    Should I be worried yet??
    I am hopinng the shell is not too hard and they can't break it!!
    the suspense is so hard......
    any advice???

    I have had hatches where they don't make a peep until day 22...I always give them til day 24 before I call it quits. Your temp/humidity sounds great. I wouldn't worry about it until maybe day 23. They will probably start hatching when you go to bed [​IMG]
     
  3. this is normal sometimes. my eggs are on day 24, no pips [​IMG]

    let them take their time, you should get some pips
