    I came in this morning to flip the newer eggs and I heard one from the older bunch start chirpping constantly for 1 min. So dose that mean I'll have little chickies today or what? I'm sooooo excited!!!!!! Merry Christmas

    Quote:Mine will often start chirping 24 hours before they are born. You shouldn't turn the eggs though for the last 3 days and keep the bator door closed. Temp fluctuations are not good for them right now. Leave them in the bator after hatching till they are dry.
