The chicks hatches over a period of a few days.  Only about half of the eggs we had in the incubator hatched.  Many of the eggs didn't even have a growing chick in them (we checked with a light) and a few of them didn't fully develop.  I was surprised at how long it takes them to get out of the shell.  At first I was worried that I would need to assist a little bit because I had read online that sometimes if they take over so many hours they need a bit of help.  It was fun to keep checking the incubator to see if more eggs had pipped and move the new chicks out once they fluffed up.

Most of these photos were taken on May 26, 2016
