    I have 26 barred rock eggs due to hatch on the 3rd of January. Is it normal to hear peeping come from the eggs even though they are two days out from hatching?

    Quote:In my experience they usually start cheeping about 24 hours before pipping not 2 whole days. yes it's normal it means they have pipped into the air sac.
