It can take anything up to twenty one days for a chick to hatch out of the egg. Incubation period is crucial to keep the chicks at the right temperature. It is ideal to start raising chickens in the spring. Only with the right set of conditions can the chicken hatch egg and at a minimum of three times a day the egg must be gently turned by hand or 'rotated' in order to prevent the developing embryo from sticking to the inside of the egg.
The temperature that it has to be at is a steady 99.5 degrees, so the best way to do this is by using a thermometer and a hygrometer which measures humidity. So, the ideal scenario is 50% humidity for day 1-18, then 70-80% for the last few remaining days.
Mark the eggs by making a mark with an X and an O on each side to ensure you are turning them correctly and once every 8 hours. Make sure to turn the eggs at least 3 times a day which include weekends. It is also essential that you keep adequate moisture in the incubator at all times as well as a couple of small paper cups containing water in them.

From hours to a day. The chick will 'pip' cut a small air hole, then rest, once rested they should start to cut the shell around the top, like a lid. It may pause to rest, the chick should push the lid off with it's head, then hook it's feet over the bottom half of the shell and push itself out. Most do not need help, keep the humidity up so the membranes don't dry out, never cut the membrane if there is still blood circulating.

Usually one to two days and sometime if its under a hen I take it out of the shell but that could mean it's not strong enough to live if it can't break out so just give it some time and if it don't hatch all the way well better luck next time!

Umm....it might take about 1 hour because you got to admit its just a helpless baby chick.if you don`t like to wait and catch the baby hatching poke the egg to help it hatch.
