where does the first pip in the egg need to be? it is day 19 and one of my eggs has made a very small pip. On day 18 i candled and drew a pencil line around the air pocket. Do they need to make the first pip in the air pocket?

Mine have in and below. Remember, the air cell continues to draw down during lockdown. There have been some changes. So even if its outside your last markings, it could very well be in the air sack. I would be concerned if it's completely opposite of the area.
Good luck and enjoy your hatches.
