    I hatch a chick today from a batch of 12 eggs, one other pipped a bit, but has stayed the same for a whole day. do you think this is the only chick that will hatch, and are the other eggs goners?

    So did it hatch or just pip? If just pipped, it could take up to 24 hours. They rest and absorb the rest of the yolk.
