So what happens whn a chick takes long to hatch. We have some chicks that poked a hole and have been like this for hrs. One that poked a hole this morning already hatched. Should I worry about the others?

After pipping the initial hole, it can be up to 24 hours for it to fully hatch.
The first pip is so that it can get a breath of air and then it absorbs its yolk sack to prepare to hatch.
 
Ok great, thanks.
