    Just be patient. It sometimes can take 23 days or more. You didn't mention if you candled the eggs at all. I usually candle on days 7, 14 & day 18 just before lockdown. If you did, were the eggs developing? If you didn't, wait until day 25 before you do. Also, did you fill the water wells on the 18th day? If not, you could add a clean wet sponge very quickly to spike the humidity, but don't keep the incubator open very long.
    If your eggs are rocking & rolling, you should see pips very soon.

    Awesome! Remember, an egg can take many hours to hatch after pipping. Keep patient & don't be in a rush to get the chick out. Sally Sunshine has a "Hatching 101" article on BYC you should check out. I'll see if I can hyperlink it for you.
    Congrats on your pip!
