    I think that three of my eggs were shaking last night. Now this morning they have stopped. Today is day 20-is this normal?

    It's very normal, for two possible reasons: 1) The chicks are actually moving, getting ready to pip; or 2) You've been staring at the 'bator so long your eyes are crossing, thereby giving the illusion that they are moving.

    I'm pretty sure for me, it's usually #2.... [​IMG]

    Congrats on the babies that are on the way!! You're going to have pips soon!! [​IMG]
