I am getting antsy! My ducklings have been peeping since Tuesday and we don't have a single pip. About how long is it from when you can hear peeping until when they pip externally? They have been on lockdown since Tuesday because when we candled them we could see that at least 5 of them had broken into the air cells and it was later that evening we started hearing peeping. I am getting nervous that they aren't going to hatch at all.

Thanks! I found 2 pips when I was standing with my nose pressed to the bator window.....one pipped on the bottom of the air cell which is why I couldn't see it earlier and one pipped at the wrong end, I didn't think to look there until after seeing the one who had pipped on the bottom....ugh!
