    Tomorrow is my 18th day and I already have a chick cheeping! What has been your earliest to have one pip and hatch???? I went ahead and went into lockdown and increased humidity.

    Day 16 I think.... You did the right thing. Go in to lockdown as soon as you hear chirping.

    Day 16? Day 17? Something like that. But I hatch seramas and they are occasionally a bit early.
