Hi there. Day 22 today and not a peep (literally) from any of the eggs. I have spoken to them but they are not responding with any tweets etc, just candled them and see the air gap at the top. gave them the most gentlest of gentle 'shake' and there is definitely something inside.
what's going on? am I being a paranoid mother? I've managed to hatch in an incubator twice before with no issues but this time i'm letting mama hen do it I'm a nervous wreck!
anyone with any advice or similar experience? thanking you :)
I know I should eave nature to do it's thing but I just need some reassurance from some chicken experts :):)

What did you see when you gave them a gentle shake? At day 22, you shouldn't see much in there beside a pretty full, dark egg and maybe some veins near the air cell.
