    Mine were day 21 yesterday, nothing so far. not even a little pip. however #5 in there is screaming his little head off from INSIDE the egg! he kept me up all night and was still at it this morning, and when i just got home from school i could hear him from the other side of the house. ran to my room thinking chickys! nope. he's still inside his little egg. and screaming at me. how early on will they start chirping at you before hatching out????? none of the 5 i have in have done anything but chirp at me, and this little guy managed to move his egg about 90 degrees sideways, but that's it.

    I had one chirp at me for two days before hatching.

    I have one that was peeping away at 5 am this morning. I came home from work expecting a chick and all I have is a peeping egg. I am right with you although mine is not screaming her head off more like talking to herself deciding what she should do next.... I told her enough already come out of that egg. I don't think she was listening though.
