    I have three beautiful babies that hatched today. I have 3 more pips. One has been pipped since this morning. I've read it can take awhile for some eggs. I see its beak moving. Just nervously awaiting its arrival. How long can it take from pip to chick?

    I'd say MAX 36 hours for a chick to leave its shell, no longer... Don't worry sometimes they like to take their time ;)
