    I have heard peeping when my incubator is closed. I thought is had to be coming from my brooder but then as I listened I realized it was coming from inside my incubator. Since the first time I have heard chicks peep several times. When they have pipped the egg you will be able to hear them. When they have internally pipped but have not pipped the shell you may hear them but it is fainter.
