    This am at 4:30 I strolled through the kitchen on my way to the bathroom and I heard peep peep...I thought I was having 1 of my dreams again so I didn't pay attention to it....then on the way back I heard it again,so I went to the bator to see and....nothing....?....

    Do they peep inside the egg?..
    Is this a good sign?...

    So after tring to go back to sleep and not having an luck, I woke up my hubby, who had to get up anyway for work...and told him not to be scared if he heard it to..I said the babies are awake..and to my surprise he said, the are awake?, they are making noise?..He actually showed interest!!...It was a nice moment for us!!...LOL

    So now I ahve 1 pip!!!!!...YEAAAAA!!!!...
    and 5 shakers!!!.....

    That is so exciting. My Hubby is going to ban me from coming here. I have 20 chicks ordered 15 in the incubator and I tried to talk him into going into TSC yesterday to see if they still had peeps. I told him I'm going crazy I need a chick to cuddle. He told me to be patient I had more coming now then I needed. He needs a quick lesson on Chick addiction.

    hearing peeps from inside the egg is normal from what i hear. CONGRATS ON THE NEW BABIES [​IMG] i love watching them shake, too!

    and boyfriends/hubbies are weird. they'll show NO interest and complain about "all these animals your getting" and when the eggs start hatching they are immediately interested. my boyfriend couldn't get over how silly they looked when they popped out of the eggs. he have never seen any bird hatch before he met me. he's such a great guy though [​IMG]

    Once they start to peep and pip, how long does it take for them to get out?
