    It is day 24 for me on this hatch. I started hearing chirping late last night. Should I stop turning them now? I have about 25 eggs set, but some might be muscovies. Everyone is candling well, I'm just not sure when the pipping normally occurs on duck eggs.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    They can be internally pipped a few days before they actually hatch. Though, they still may hatch early. I'd stop turning the eggs for now.
