    I have only hatched chicks once- as I keep waterfowl, But I can hear them from day 25 sometimes. You can start to hear them when they are trying to break through the membrane in the egg. That could be as early as day 18- but it wouldnt be as regular or as loud as once they have actually pipped the shell.

    Quote:x2. . . This can be day 19, 20, 21, 22, . . . but within 24 hours you will be seeing some hatching action - - not just hearing it!
