    [​IMG] I have been reading about everyone hearing peeping during hatching - one of mine pipped last night around 9:30pm and the pip was bigger this morning, but I don't hear anything.

    I tapped on the glass of the bator and shook it a little but no sounds.

    When should I start hearing peeps?

    They are probably resting. It's big business trying to get out of that hard shell. Give them time and sit on your hands [​IMG] What day are you on?

    Sometimes I hear it...sometimes not. The shell doesn't have to be pipped to hear them peeping. AFter they pip internally, you can hear them when they are awake and pipping. I think they sleep quite a bit during the pipping and hatching. [​IMG]

    This is day 20 for me, so this one egg is a little early. I have 4 others that had not pipped as of this morning
