    It's my first time incubating and I'm wondering how long it should take from internal pip to external? I have 8 Welsh Harlequins and at least 3 have internally piped. How much time should they take to pip externally? Today is day 28. Is love any support I can get :)

    Ducklings take patience and more patience when hatching...They can take a very long time to hatch. Days from start of internal pip to finish of zipping and hatch is not unlikely.
