    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but they can take 24 from pipping to being out.

    Hello it's hard isn't it ! You just have to be patient :D it can take up to 24-36 hours for a chick to fully hatch you will just have sit on your hands and wait when I had my first hatch one egg made a dent as you described in the morning and then started to finally hatch late that night so hopefully you may a some chicks pretty soon
