    It could be up to 24 hours before the external pip - and then another 24 hours + until its fully hatched. Keep a close eye on it- I have heard that calls are difficult to hatch because of the shorter beaks. Sometimes they cant actually reach the shell of the egg to tap on it to break it. Good luck ..and dont forget about some photos when hatching is done!!
