    My 5 year old sons Godmother gave him 3 eggs and this morning is day 21 of incubation and this morning we hear the chirps coming from the egg! He left to school very happy this morning ! This is our first time hatching eggs we are very excited.[​IMG]



    Oh we just started hearing the chirping this morning around 5am so how long does it take for the chick to come out ?

    It could be a couple of days, so don't panic if it takes that long! I heard chirping from the egg(s) long before I ever saw a pip.

    Some pip and zip fast, others pip, then rest a long time before zipping (chipping a line of holes around the egg to pop the whole end off). I had one pip and then it took TWO days to zip.
