So this is my first Broody hen and this is her first clutch. Last night before I went to bed the eggs were rocking. And this morning (Day 21) I checked on the eggs and a few were pipped. My Question is, How long after they are externally pipped will they hatch?

It is the same as for chicken egg in an incubator-- up to 24 hours but can be longer
