    its nearly time for my first hatch to hatch they hatch tomorrow but there are no pips not even 1 is there something wrong what can i do to see if they are still alive? or should i just wait


    ETA:OK its day 21 and its over in about 8 hours and there are no signs of hatching no pips no chirps and barley any movment. if they dont hatch today or tomorrow should i candle them on day 23 to make sure they are alive and still moving? or candle on day 22 to find out or how long should i wait?

    Just wait. I hate it too. I had one hatch at 19.5 days, with two other's pipped but no other movement or pips. Day 20 begins for me in 5 hours.

    the reason im worrying is that i had a temp spike on day 18 it went to like 100.1 rather than the normal 99 or is that ok?

    100.1 is nothing. No worries there.
