    Does this always happen? For instance do the eggs start to wiggle and then you hear some peeping and then the pipping and then hatching? I know the eggs do them all but my question is whether each and every egg does all of these?[​IMG]?

    Also is there a certain time frame that the eggs usually do these things.....for example...... the egg wiggles for a day, peeps for 1/2 a day, pips and then hatches????
    Just trying to learn a little. Thanks for the help guys.[​IMG]

    I don't understand..When the egg wiggles and peeps it should be hatching SOON.

    If it wiggles and peeps for more than a couple days you have a problem.

    It should take them about 24 hours to hatch after they start trying.

    I've had an egg that has been wiggling for a couple days now but just started peeping this morning. The other eggs in my bator have not moved, peeped, or anything. The are all fertile and i could see them moving before i went into lockdown but now im nervous and was just trying to see if the others were just a little less developed than the one peeping or if they don't all necessarily have to wiggle and peep. Does this mean i have a problem?

    No, wiggling and/or chirping are sometimes skipped till after piping the shell.
