I need some fast urgent help! I started with 9 eggs and all have died but one. I think I have killed the one I have left. It is day 24 and I could hear chirping and moving around but no pipping.
So...I read many things and they said with the egg not doing any pipping that I needed to help it along.
So...I put a small hole in the egg and I immediately saw bright red blood so I stopped. I put the egg back in incubator with wet towel.
I can see that it's still breathing but that's all now. No chirping or trying to get out of egg.
I pray that I haven't killed it.
PLEASE someone tell me what I need to do! It's my only chick and this is the first time incubating.
I'm heart broken......
I'm sorry Purplelove! I have had HORRIBLE hatching lately as well! I tried to help a couple chicks in my last hatch and saw blood, I waited HOURS, it was still breathing and finally I tried to help again. It still wasn't ready and I did kill it that time. So, I agree with Ant Farm and leave it alone. I wish you the best of luck!
