    I can hear peeping coming from the shells and that started about 12 hrs ago. I am wondering how long it takes from the first time you hear them peep inside to when they start to pip? How long is too long? Thanks for any advice!

    I dont know too much about it, but Ive heard peeping from eggs as much as 24hrs before hatching.
    Hope that helps...
