    I have two sets of 3 eggs in two mini bators that were set two day apart. Today is day 20 for the first one and the other is on day 18 but I started hearing the first group actually peeping from the inside of the egg! [​IMG] Is this normal and that they're getting ready to break out? I'm so nervous! [​IMG]

    It is very normal. Soon, very soon, they will come out to meet you! Good luck on your hatch!
