    At day 21, if they're ready to hatch, you should notice that they've dried up inside, and there's no liquid - Their air sack has let their embryotic mass cave in, and the veiny skin around it press tight against the shell just at the border of the air-cell and chick's area.

    Otherwise, if it is not ready, you'll see that there's still liquid or a lot of movement in there.
