    I know that the eggs are incubated for 21 days and hatching is expected to begin to happen on that 21st day, and that they can take up to three days to hatch, but my question is How long after they pip will it take the chick to come out of the shell completely???? I have four pipped and I am very anxious, trying to be patient.
