Hands on hatching and help - Page 979

post #9781 of 9926


oh my goodness!  That sounds really scary!  (I am already an emotional wreck!!)  I will have a look and see how he is tomorrow - today he is just breathing ( a little shivery at times).  I did think that his beak looked a bit funny just now - either cracked or misaligned.  Not sure - you can make out a dark little line on the bottom of the picture, but it may be nothing.  I'm just going to try and get through the hatch before worrying about a potential beak deformity!  I will keep any eye for lots of wriggling then and take that as a cue for a little bit more 'help'.

Is there someone who can help me know if my chick needs help?
It's had a decent size hole for a whole day and her beak is resting at the hole and is opening and closing pretty quickly but it's not trying to break any more shell.

Sounds like it's still busy absorbing the yolk! Aslong as it's able to break it'll be fine. Just keep the humidity up and keep an eye on the exposed membrane

clap.gif we are all about hatching, not just assisting! We celebrate it all! Congrats.

Quail are the cutest to watch zip. They are so much quicker (and more efficient, in my opinion) than chicks and ducks. big_smile.png
