    It is currently day 21 and none of the eggs have internally pipped yet. Is this normal or should I do something? I'm just really worried

    Are you hatching chicken eggs?

    Did you candle before lockdown? Eggs can sometimes take a little longer to hatch, especially if temperatures are lower than ideal.

    Also make sure you are counting your days correctly - day 21 will always be the same day of the week as the day you set the eggs (because day 1 starts the following day).

    I did candle, of 13 eggs I was left with only 5 on day 18. From day 1-18 temp was 100 & humidity was 45-55. I raised humidity to 70 the final three days. Also the air sack takes up a little bit more than quarter of the egg.
