I have shipped eggs hatching currently. 1 hatched fine but having issues with 2nd which is in a saddled air cell egg. The chick evidently tried to pip below the air cell because there is a small crack, but no hole all the way through the egg. Since then, the chick seems to have repositioned itself and has pipped internally into the air cell - I can hear it chirping and can get it to tap back to me by tapping the egg; but it has made no progress towards pipping externally in the past 12-15 hours. I candled and can see movement and it chirps a lot when the egg moves - just nothing in the way of escaping the shell. Should I leave it alone and just observe, or do I need to start thinking about assisting soon?
