    I had some hatch on day 22 and then a few yesterday which was day 23. I have like 5 that haven't even pipped. Yesterday they were shaking the eggs and tapping but I have not heard or seen much of anything today or tonight. Are they probably dead then? Should I open them? Disappointed because they were alive yesterday.

    I know they probably won't. I just hate it that I could hear them and see the eggs move and now not much at all.
