    when i opened the bator to add some moist towels this morning i found one egg had piped at some point during the night but i heard no noise from the bator and i see no progress it would break my heart for them to have survived all the awful temp fluctuations and just die during hatching ... shoudnt there be noise

    Not always, they could be sleepng. Sometimes if you tap on the bator they will talk back. They will cheep up a storm though when they are trying to get out. Temp flux can have a big impact on actual hatches though. Good luck.
