    How long do I wait for them to hatch before I should worry...I also haven't heard any chirping or peeping yet, is that normal? It's only been 3 hours since the first one pipped.

    it can take any where from 1-12 hours for a baby to hatch maybe even longer or less. chirp to them and see if they respond.

    I have 9 that pipped....they are all "shrink wrapped" I'm so glad I started checking them...there is condensation all over the viewing Windows so not sure why the eggs are like that...
