    Is that normal? First time incubating- I've heard peeping inside an egg on the day it hatched out....what's the deal with peeping on day 18?

    He is in the air cell now so he can peep at you. He may still take another 2 days or so to hatch he has to use the air in the air cell that can take a day Id guess then he will pip and that can be another 24 hours . He might also want to come out early you never know .

    Yay! That's a good thing! It may take a few more days to hatch, but I bet you get a pip within 24 hours.
    Exciting!
