So I have a quick question 1 of 5 eggs has hatched a 2nd has popped but I haven’t noticed movement nor has it came out yet how long does that process take up to and should I be worried?

I don't know if its any different for parsons but when mine begin to hatch they don't usually completely stop moving after they've started...from what I've seen.

I mean regardless, the only thing you can do is wait. Also remember they don't all hatch at the same time, the intervals can be really long sometimes.

It’s not moving I think it’s dead. Don’t know if I should do something or just leave it be.
 
Just leave it be. Struggling to get it out of the shell could kill it if it is still alive. After they pip they can lie there motionless for a few days before they come out of the egg. They usually still have yolk to absorb and do not need food or water.
