This is my 3rd batch of silkie eggs, but my first time candling them every 3 or so days. Of 6, 4 are left and were looking good at their last candling on day 15. On day 17, they began shaking periodically, but then would stop for hours. Its now day 19, three days later, with no pips and the eggs are continuing to shake. I raised the humidity in my HOVA-Bator incubator (model no. 1582) yesterday and its now in the 70-80% range. Should I be hearing chrips or be seeing any pips after 3 days of shaking?? Is this normal for eggs to shake for this long without any evident progress?
