    No pips, no peeps...nothing. No wiggling.
    No indication that anything is going to go right. [​IMG]
    This is what makes me order more eggs. I sit here and say,
    "What if nothing hatches?" Then I calculate how much longer until it will be winter again, figure I can raise some up still....and order more eggs.

    Tell My eggs to WIGGLE- peep, SOMETHING....[​IMG]

    Day 20....I have one gargantuan egg that looks like an Ostrich egg...lol, really its a Jumbo Easter egger...that has a maybe pip on it...not sure, so if it is a pip, its not a big one- I tried to stretch my eyeball smooshed against the window of the bator so I can see that side of the egg, but i cant tell, really...but its all I have now.

    However, it is indeed officially Day 20. [​IMG]

    My count so far is:
    three chicks- one is giant, thought I was hatching an ostrich...then I thought a goose...it was a jumbo sized EE.

    Two of my Silkie eggs have pips, and about four other EE have pips...I am hoping for a Silkie soon...[​IMG]

    I wouldnt worry too much. The perfect hatch is pips on day 20 hatch on day 21, or pips and hatch on day 21. but if you temps were a little off there will be some variances.
