    LOL. Congrats!!! Now comes the even harder part....sitting on your hands and waiting...lol. After they pip it can take anywhere from a couple hours to 24 hours. My last hatch I would say the average between pip and zip was about 12-18 hours. A couple quicker, a couple later. Each chick is on it's own time line and has it's own needs before taking the final plunge to the outside world.
