That's where ours was. It's beak was stuck to the membrane so it couldn't finish getting around. There was no blood and we really had to wet membrane down. Once I put him back in the incubator he finished breaking out.@MindyNE
I agree I have learned so much too. I actually had worse luck with my local eggs than my shipped eggs as far as getting them to lockdown. Now it seems the local eggs are hatching out better than the shipped silkies. Today is actually day 21 and we have quite a few pips still. I think we will have a pretty good hatch.
