    when they pip you will see a break in shell, and i would wait at least till all of the 23 day is over. they may just be late to come out temps may have been low, don't give up. good luck [​IMG] for i had one batch that i had my day wrong ( because i marked it wrong in book) and was starting to take them out and seen one had pip and i stopped and had a good hatch ( about 80%) so make sure you have days right
