    In about 12 hours it will mark a full 28 days and I am only seeing a couple pips in the eggs. Should I be worried? Would have thought I would be seeing more action by now. 10 Live eggs as of yesterday. These pekins are larger than average. Is it possible that these may take more like 29 or 30 days to hatch?

    28 days is just a guideline, sometimes they can take a little longer. I would not be worried at all yet, especially since some are already pipped. Just keep an eye on them, they will likely be out in a day or so. :)
