    They can take from 5 minutes up to 48 hrs, but usually within 24 hrs. I would wait. I was on day 23 and was going to pitch the eggs I had left in the incubator. I picked one of the eggs up and I heard peeping. What a surprise. It had pipped on the bottom side of the shell where I couldn't see it. I did help it hatch and now it is doing great. Keep the faith...

    Ok then, she has it under control. Just wait a little bit and see if it hatches by morning.
