    Ok, how long does it take from pip to zip? I have 3 that have pips in them & an impending dr's apt. Do you think I can make it to the dr's & back in time for hatching??? 2 of the pips haven't done much of anything since discovered at 7am (now its 9am)
    Advice please!

    I think you'll make it. At the rate their going anyway. It can take 24 hours from pip to zip! It really depends on the chicks.

    Yes, I made it out to the store & the Dr's, got home & no changes at all. Still holding at 4 pips, come on little chickies, you can do it!
