    I have an egg the has already internally pipped...it has been shaking for a week and just last night it started peeping (I believe it's this egg peeping :)) it is still shaking and peeping today...so should I just leave it alone? And when should it hatch?

    The question we need to know to help is how long has the egg been incubated? If you can hear the chirping- you are about 24hrs away... has the egg pipped? (that means a small mini-volcano looking crack on the large round part of the shell).... I am assuming it is a chicken egg- that should mean 21 days of incubation. I hope that this helps!
