    I started with 15 eggs. I took 3 out early on due to them being nothing. I had 12 left and for sure 8 I could see embryos moving. The other 4 were dark and I just couldn't tell. I had two hatch on day 20. They knocked the other ones around a lot it seemed. And it's now day 23. No pips, or chirps. I even did the water test and they showed to be viable by floating and 90/10. But I never saw them wiggle or do anything. Should I call it?
