    If it is hatch day should I be hearing peeping? I'm not hearing or seeing anything so far but I know it can take a few days for them to hatch.

    Quote:Sometimes you do, sometimes you don't..I usually don't hear any peeping until the egg pips. Good luck! It's always fun see that first pip!

    I only had 2 eggs make it to lock down. I set 7 Trader Joe's eggs. The first one was very fast - a few hours. The second one got stuck and the membranes dried up and I could tell there was no flexing in the egg anymore. I helped it out with a warm wash cloth and as I moistened things up, it was pushing so hard to get all the way out. He has been in that same place for 10 hours! Both are out!
