    No cracked shell yet and we have heard chirping coming from the bator since 10am. This is my first so what do I do? The chirping has also decreased and I don't know what egg it is either. Plus we are in lock down. CLUELESS????

    24 hours to hatch is normal and they often chirp intermittently from within the shell for quite some while.
    They generally make their way out without any interference whatever,
    Good Luck,
