This is my first batch and im on day 22, I had 2 of 41 hatch out of the shell lastnight and a bunch more that started to poke through lastnight but they havnt come out of the shell yet. so my question is how long does it take them to get out of the shell once they make the first poke through?

It can take 24 hours or more, and sometimes they do hatch a couple days late, especially when it's cold. I strongly suggest not helping (but that's just me) and don't give up until at least day 25. I had quail eggs that were supposed to hatch Saturday/Sunday and they hatched Tuesday. Patience!!! Good luck!!!
