    when mine chirped it had already pipped because i only checked temp, not egg noises.
    The time between internal (when you hear chriping) and external (pecking the shell) pipping can probably take 0-12 hours, considering it can take 24 hours after external pipping to acutally hatch. Good news is your egg is ALIVE!!!!

    Usually it isn't long before the chicks externally pip after they have internally pipped but there are exceptions.

    Quote:Same thing with hatching in general. Usually 6-8 hours after external pip when egg hatches, but it can take up to 24-30 hours after pip to hatch (can happen on its own, or because of low moisture).
