    I am a beginner myself but I asked the same question afew days ago and was told to wait... It took two days and me watching the bator every 10 minuites to see until it finally hatched. Another one only took 12 hours so just be patient

    It can take 24 hours before the chicks zip out of their shells from a pip. Do not open the incubator it can cause your temps and humidity to lower leaving the rest of the chicks not to hatch out...
