Within an hour, normally. In rare occasions it takes a day, but that is
unusual. If you can find an egg you can see if they are ready. I have found most
eggs easy to see if you make a dilute slurry of some of the peat in a Petri or
other clear dish and view them with a magnifier and a flashlight shining up
from beneath. The clear eggs are easy to see and are not ready to hatch. The
embryoed eggs are more difficult to see, but still possible. If you see clear
eggs, there may also be some embryoed eggs that you cannot find. They don't all
develop at the same rate.
