    How long can a chick stay in egg after it starts cheeping?

    I've heard cheeping for two days, a day and a half into lock-down. But I don't know if it was ONE egg, or cheeping started in one, that egg pipped, zipped and hatched and another egg was cheeping then.

    But it sure seemed like a really long time!!
