Usually happens within 24 hours, but can take up to 48 hours. I've had some pip and exit the shell within 30 minutes and others take as long as a day and a half.

If the pipped egg was exposed to air (e.g., by the incubator being opened), the chick could get shring-wrapped and be unable to escape from the egg.

Oh O.K, thanks, my eggs are under a broody and Ive already lost one chick due to because it couldn't escape the shell so i was just wondering in case another one take way to long. The chick that gave up was only at it for a day though.
