    I have a pipping egg and it pipped twice 2 or 3 hours ago. Not moving for awhile now(2-3 hours) and i was wondering if i can do anything to hatch it. (add water posibbly?.. Its a bantam egg..)

    it can take as long as...for chickens...24 hours to get out of the egg AFTER pipping. Patience, patience,young grasshopper, and soon you will have chickens!

    It can take over 24 hours for an egg to hatch.... just leave it alone.
