    My eggs have started to show little holes and shell cracking, I cannot hear a thing, How long does this process take??. I have 36 eggs in the hatching tray now, with 3 or 4 that are showing signs that they want out. What should I be listening for?, I don't hear anything.

    I'm hatching right now too. I've done this lots of times but always get excited and sometimes impatient too.
