    I can hear my eggs-How long now? I thought they were due March 2nd but could it be March 1st? (its my birthday and that would be so cool)
    My hen is sitting on them and I thought I would use a flashlight to see if I could see something-all dark but I didn't realize til I was putting them back with momma-then I held it to my ear and heard the egg.

    It is normal. It means the chick has pierced the membrane inside the egg and is breathing air now. A rough pattern is peeping on day 19, pipping on day 20 and hatching on day 21.
