    How long does it take from them making their first pip to them hatching out entirely??? I have two that have pipped and i realllly want to see them come out without having to stay up until 5 in the morning, but it seems like it's not going to happen :[ I wish they would just come out!!!

    Usually my early hatchers pip at night then hatch in the morning. They seem to be affected by the light, but that is just my observation. [​IMG]

    I've only hatched 4 eggs, but all four were at least 12 hours from first pip to hatch. When they decide to hatch, it goes very quickly- it goes from tiny hole to hatched chick in about 10 minutes.
