    I'm on day 18 with my first hatch. I started with 14 shipped BBS orp.s. 7 look good of the 14 I started with. I turned the turner off this morning. When will I be able to hear the first little peeps from inside the eggs?

    You only hear peeping once the chick pip's the air sac. You should hear that around day 20-21 somtimes you cannot hear them till they pip the egg so dont be alarmed if you do not hear them.
