    Hi!

    Please tell me how can you hear the chicks peeping and pipping

    inside the shell that is inside the incubator????

    I have a Hova-Bator that holds48 eggs.

    Thanks for your help!

    I don't know about from inside an incubator but I could hear mine peeping as clear as anything from under the hen about five feet away.

    Oohh this is always exciting I always love seeing chicks hatch from the incubator! [​IMG] Well, when they are peeping and your in the same room you should hear it pretty good, peeps arent usualy quiet so a better question would be, how do you not hear it? Sometimes I grab an egg on hatching day, and, to check if its hatching, I put it up to my ear and tap it with my nail, that usualy gets some peeps out of any quiet eggs. Good Luck onthe hatch [​IMG]

    how far into incubation can you get to hear peeping? Gosh, this is like feeling for movement when you are pregnant. Exciting!

    I can't waite to start to hatch eggs,

    I think I'm going to buy a webcam (even tho there is one built into my pc) and when it's close to hatch day.. have it on record.. unless by then my area gets it's DSL.. then I will keep it on Live web feed. so we all can watch the hatch.. if not Then I'll have it on video!!!.
