    You are fine, may not see pips for a couple days yet, Day 20 is early unless your bator is running hot. Don't mess with them,
    just be patient... I know it's hard!

    Quote:see what happens.....you worry and then things start happening....Know that you saw them move just wait till your lower back starts hurting cause you are checking the bator every 2 minutes for action. [​IMG] I know this because the exact same thing happened to me! Good luck on the hatch!!
