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. :(

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 3 chicks that have hatched this morning, 3 eggs pipped, and 2 eggs still hanging in there. I'm incubating under a broody hen and we weren't due until tomorrow so, pleasant surprise for me this morning!! :)
