    I have had them take anywhere from 27 to 32 days - My last hatch the first couple hatched on day 28 and the last ones on day 32 with some each day in between.

    Mine pipped at day 24 and I put it in the hatcher. He hatched day 25. This is the only one I did though, so it's probably the exception rather then the rule.
