I'm working on my first batch of eggs right now (Ameraucana) and they're due on Friday. I've done plenty of research and they seem to be right on track. The incubator sits near an exterior wall, and I've noticed in the past 24 hours some very faint chirping noises, like that of a baby chick. It's hard to tell if it may be a wild bird outside, but there are no trees anywhere near the house, so it would have to be perfect timing with the wild birds flying by the house. ... Or is it possible to hear the chicks peeping while still inside of the egg? I heard one of them early this morning, and the other about 30 minutes ago - when I started researching the possibility. But I don't actually see anything about it online. Can chicks make peeping noises before they actually pip?
