Hello there,

From the first time you see peck marks in the shell, it can take 24--48 hours for the baby to fully hatch.  It's usually about 1 day but sometimes it goes on longer.  Anything longer than 48 hours and you've got a chick in trouble.  At this time you should consider helping the chick free itself from it's egg and before the membrane dries out and totally traps the young baby.
