    How long from pip to zip? Have hen sitting on 19 day old bantam eggs.
     
  2. It can be up to 48 hours from the original external pip before the chick fully hatches

    Generally within 24 hours after pip the chick hatches. It can take a bit longer. I don't mess with hatching broody eggs, but in my incubator, where I can keep track of what happens when, I start an assist at 24 hours.
