    I can hear the peeps and some eggs are pipping through. They are only on 20 day. Is it because my temp got a little high on one of the day? Is it a bad thing or good thing as they are a day early? Any help would be helpful..

    Sounds good. Now sit on those hands and even if the little fluffys start looking at you, resist opening the bator for the next 48 hours! Hope they all make it!
