    i once had eggs that peeped around days 22/23, and I just left them and the next day they hatched out, so from my experience I think you should just leave the egg and see what happens

    From what I have heard peeping from the eggs is normal, they start to peep to their mom and other chicks (think I saw it on "The Private Life of Chickens", a PBS documentary that you can watch on youtube, they mention the egg peeping thing).

    Just wait until they are ready to hatch, sounds like you have some happy chicks in those eggs. I would probably talk back to them softly when they peep so they know they aren't alone.
