    Once the chick has internally pipped, which means ripped through her membrane, you will start to hear peeping. I always here mine through the incubator! It will get louder once they externally pip, which means a hole in the shell. From the eternal pip there should be no more than 24 hours until you have chicks!

    and you will be so excited expecially with that first one!
    I loved hearing the pipping, than see the shell breaking away and a baby unfold...[​IMG]

    good luck!
