    I have my first hatching of a doz eggs tomorrow. The eggs are moving and I thought I was imagining it at first, but I can hear chirping from inside the eggs. Didn't know they could do that. There are three eggs I am not sure about in their development, because the shells were too dark to see with candling. But, I am so excited about hatching eggs from the incubator for the first time.

    I didn't know that they could make chirping sounds while still in the eggs. I thought I was hearing things at first. Is that normal?

    Thank you. They were all speaking to each other through the night. The eggs were rolling around a bit in the incubator this morning, so I think they will be ready to pop out soon. Can't wait!
