Hi there, hope you are enjoying BYC! :frow

What incubator are you using? Forced or still air? Where did your eggs come from? Are you using a calibrated thermometer/hygrometer?

It sounds like your temperature is not accurate.

Peeping would mean an internal pip has taken place into the air cell. This often takes place about a day before I see external pips. A chick could rest up to 24 hours after external pip to finish absorbing the yolk and veins.
