Babies are on the way......it's taking forever
How long has the hole(pip) been there? They can start peeping before they pip. After the external pip they can take anywhere between 24-48 hours to hatch. Once they start to zip the shell it usually isn't long for them to hatch out.I have an egg that has been peeping for 3 days and has a small hole chipped out on the side next to the incubator wall. It gets really loud sometimes, but is not doing anymore chipping on shell. I've never seen this before.
