    Hi Everyone....I need some help determining if this is my first pip or not. Today is day 20. Water from the humidity has been accumulating on the top of my plexiglass and every once in a while has dropped a drop of water on this egg. I'm not sure if this is what a pip looks like, or if this was caused by the water. I hope its a pip....

    That was the one I looked at and yes it could be but without a better pic I don't want to say for sure. Just remember a chick can pip then stop for up to 24 hours before starting to zip.

    I cant hear much with the fan going...but then again maybe they are loud enough to hear over the fan. If they are pretty loud, then no...no chirps yet...but another egg also has a small crack which looks like it could be a second pip.....THIS SO EXCITING......My wife is going to think I'm crazy when she gets here and sees me like a giddy school boy..... I HOPE I HOPE I HOPE ITS A PIP>>>>LETS DO THIS>>>>>>
