Whay day do eggs pip on, how many hoursinto that day on average. My eggs are on day 20, and yesterday I saw an egg move about and today I heard some cheeping from it. Any ideas would be great!

They should start pipping today, maybe tomorrow if you had any low temps. Peeping & rocking is a good sign! Won't be long now, just be sure to keep the humidity up so they can get out.

I know what a pip is, but Ive seen zip on here too. What does 'zipping' mean? I cant wait mine hatch on the 23rd.
