    Today is day 21 I hear peepin but see no pips or zips which is unusual for me, mine always hatch on day 19 or 20 so I'm starting to get worried. I started out with about 30 and I am down to 12. I have an LG still air no turner. Im starting to think I may need to upgrade. I did a carton hatch but I hand turned them in the carton. I so hope they hatch!!

    EDITED TO ADD:: I opened all the egg today, only 2 had piped through the membrane, those 2 the eggs sacs were completley absorbed the others never piped the membrane? What could of happened. Its an LG still air but I've used it many many times before. The Temp were 99 on the rack and 102 on top of the eggs. I kept a low humidity for the first 18 days and had it around 80% after that???? I did a carton hatch, I didn't elevate one side of the carton like some do, I hand turned the eggs (bantam eggs) so there was enough room to turn the eggs in the carton from one side to the other, I left them in the carton (was that my problem) although I've hatched like that before?? I'm just stumped!!??? The only thing I did different is I only turned them twice a day but I've slacked on my turning before?? Any ideas??
