I need help for possibly assisting an egg hatching!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I need help because one of my eggs as started zipping, but it has stopped and an hour and a half as already gone by. I looked inside the egg (through the incubator) with a flash light and noticed a sticky air cell. I might need to assist it, but I've never done this before. Here's a picture.

Any clues on what I should do? Wait, help or what? It looks like its struggling to, I can see the beak and its breathing heavily. Help please. hu.gif
You don't throw a whole life away just because their beaten up a little~

It made it out just fine. Shortly after I posted it started zipping again, and is now in the brooder with the other chick doing great! Thanks for asking though. wink.png Here it is. I vent sexed both chicks and I'm pretty positive this ones a girl and the others a boy.


We named this one penny. Guess she was just a slow hatcher. wink.png
