    I know this has been beat to death......
    How long can they peep before pipping?
    I guess I am so afraid they will peep peep peep and die before they pip. I don't know how long they can live on the air in the egg.
    Someone must have an answer......

    You're too funny, Karen! I don't usually hear much peeping before the pipping, but if I remember, the first hatch I ever had, after I heard peeping coming from the bator, it was a couple of hours till she pipped.
