    I have a little silkie x bantam egg in my brinsea mini eco incubator. Yesterday (day 21) I heard chirping from the egg from 5pm to about 10pm. Then the chirping stopped. I am feeling really worried because it is now 11.30am on day 22 and still no noise from the egg. How long does it take between internal and external pip? I can't see any signs of an external pip on the egg
