Eggs started pipping on Saturday around 12:00 noon and as of today at 12:00 noon (48hours) 5 out of 9 have hatched with the last hatching Sunday around 3:00pm. I put the chicks in a brooder so the hen would keep setting. How long should I wait before giving up on the other eggs?

I am confused ! Is the hen hatching them, or is the hen a separate issue? Was she already sitting on the eggs? Were the eggs all put in incubator the same day after being stored?
