    I put some English Orps in lockdown today.

    If you want great FBCM eggs, try bargain's. I had a great hatched with her eggs.

    I can hear cheeping in mine as well. I had them in my closet floor this whole time, but my wife who isnt a chicken lover insisted that I move the incubator to another room for the hatch so she doesn't have to listen to all the cheep, cheep, cheep. Lol If it was only up to me I'd leave them where they are. I love the sound of new babies!! Going home on my lunch break to check on them for sure.

    How long after they start cheeping do they have to make a pip?
