    This is first hatch ever my first chick just pip or broke the shell. How long does it usually take the chick to finish hatching.

    24 hours and sometimes longer from the first pip til they zip out of the egg. They are resting, learning to breathe, finishing absorbing the yolk sac.

    Patience. Sit on your hands, no opening the bator!!!
