    Sounds like it, but I wouldn't be candling right now. The babies are moving all around to get into position to hatch, and you could disorient them. Also they need all the extra humidity to hatch. GOOD LUCK [​IMG]

    Not all chirp or peep while in the egg, but some do. I have 5 pips right now and hear only 1 chick occasionally peep.

    Some do, some don't. But if you listen real carefully, you might be able to hear it if it's pipped.
