    Today was day 23 for me as well. My other chicks hatched earlier, but I had 6 eggs left, all of which were moving at lockdown. So today I moved the 4 hatched chicks to the brooder, and quickly candled the remaining eggs...no movement, no sound. They didn't make it.

    I you had a pip today, it might be that your temp was low, and your eggs developed late, so it's not impossible. Is there any sound or movement? If you have no external pips, you might candle them. But if you have any pips, don't open the bator.
