    I have 6 BOxEE cross eggs in the incubator and 3 have piped on day 19, is this too early? I can hear them cheeping. This is my first hatch.

    No they should be fine, you probably had the temp a little to high. I'm on day 20 with D'Uccle chicks and don't have a pip yet, but they are chirping

    No its all normal. If the heat is to high that will happen in the summer my broodie's usually hatch in 19-20 days.

    Its fine. And its a good thing it is, because theres nothing we can do about it. Give Mother Nature the reins on this one.
