    Depending on the temps you've had in the bator, they could start pipping early- around day 18/19 if your temps where high, or a few days later than 21 if your temps were too low.

    I've had some pip on day 18 and hatch on day 19, some that pipped and hatched on day 19, some that pipped and hatched on day 20 and still have some that have done neither on day 22 all in the same setting. I'm giving it until day 24 or 25 before throwing in the towel.

    So if the hatch early its becuase of high temperature. All my days of incubation the temp has been at 99.5 degrees so they would probaly start pipping like day 19 or 20 right?
