One peeped back and he's ecstatic. Hopefully tomorrow hatching!
Why are on BYC then? It sounds like you could have total control of the remote right now. Hurry before hubby gets tired of chirping!
Sounds like he has the bug like the rest of us! I know I frequently cheep at my eggs.
I too am guilty of making noises when the babies start hatching. When it gets close to hatching time, I make Momma hen noises to see if I can coax a response. I've noticed that when I make encouraging momma noises to pipping eggs, the chicks tend to hatch a little faster.
It works! It really does I started chirping at my eggs at lockdown since yesterday morning and a few of the eggs started to jiggle around! I love it when they start chirping back at you.
I was also in the "cheep-cheep" club when those little darlings started to pip. Unfortunately, my son's sense of humor forced him to respond from across the room, "Expensive!" every time I "cheeped" at the incubator. Funny kid. Got annoying pretty fast...
Aw! I love that.
