Some people say they hear their eggs peeping. What day does this start? I'm on day 18 with my silkie eggs and about to take them out of the turner. How is it possible for them to peep in there, it seems so crowded!

They usually pip the air sac and start peeping on day 20. Once they get a good pip open on the shell you can really hear them.
I enjoy peeping back at them too and other nonsensical encouragement vocals.


Good luck and remember, don't open the incubator unless there's an emergency!

Mine starting peeping from inside the eggs the morning of day 19. And.......the first one hatched at 4am this morning followed by another at 9am and the third at 11am....still patiently waiting for the others!

Good Luck!
