    Good luck with the hatch! May you wind up with two dozen little chicks.

    hold your breath, if you hear a peep, the chick has pecked through to air cell, usually outer pip will happen in another 24 hrs. after the outer pip happens it might be another 24 hrs before they come out of the egg the egg may be still during that 24 hrs after the pip since the egg has to rest and get used to the air. sometimes people think they need help hatching during this time, but they are absorbing their yolk. everything will happen in it's own time good luck!
