    I have heard you mention being able to hear them inside the shells. I was wondering when you might be able to hear this.
    Our cat was flipping out a few days ago and staring at the incubator. Just curious if she was hearing anything or just being a cat...she can't see what is in there she hasn't been on top and has no way to the eggs inside from anywhere around.

    I've only noticed it the day of hatching, as they prepare to pip and afterwards.
