    When will my eggs start to pip, and will I be able to hear them if they are in a Styrofoam incubator?

    Hi and [​IMG] - glad you have joined us. I'd suggest posting your question on the "incubating and hatching eggs" forum - sorry, i have never used an incubator, so i cannot help you.

    Good luck

    I don't think you would hear them but, if you can see them through the window you would notice their beak poking a hole in the egg. Eventually they zip, which means peck holes all around the shell. At hatch they try to push the top of shell off so they can get out.
