My incubator instructions say that when the eggs pip, i should raise the humidity of my incubator. However, i am sure i read that i should raise it on day 18. Do they pip on day 18? If not, what is correct thing to do?

Thanks

On day 18, raise the humidity and don't open the incubator at all. The eggs can pip anytime, from day 18 and up. It really depends on the hatch.
