    i can hear chicks and some of the eggs are moving around. but none of them are out yet. does this mean they are going to hatch soon?

    A pip is when they make a hole in the shell (looks like an X)

    Did you up your hum on day 18 ? On day 18 you should up your hum to 60%-65% To do this add some water and see how far it goes up !! Give it a little time before adding tons.

    No, the holes are fine.... I use the non-slip liner (sold at walmart) to put over the wire just so its a soft for them. Next time you hatch you can try that if you want !!
