I can't wait! so excited, i just want to see them all hatch!! As i stated it's around day 15 and 16 for the eggs, and im just wondering, when will i hear noises from the inside? I hear people talking about hearing pips from inside of the eggs, is that around day 19 and 20?

Sometimes they don't peep at all, but if you listen very carefully you can usually hear a tiny faint tapping noise. That's once they've pipped internally, into the air sac, and now they're tapping away at the shell to pip through that. So if you hear a tapping noise, there'll usually be a pip within 24 hours.

Hi there

I would agree that you may hear cheeping around day 20.

Here is a link to a thread I did earlier which explains the hatching process in full detail.

I hope it helps you.
