An internal pip shows up as a shadow in the air cell when candled, (though we aren't "supposed" to be candling at the time they are supposed to be pipping.) There is no telling when or how long it will take to hatch. Chicks/ducks can be seen wiggling at different times for different eggs. I don't generally see much in the area of wiggling eggs. Usually a chick/duck will externally pip within/around 24 hours after the internal pip then after the external pip it can takes another 12-24 hours before they zip. It is actually a very long process over the average.
