Thread Starter 

what are the chances he is going to make it? i was trying to move him to the hatcher and dropped him 

 

there was movement as i picked him up but checked on him a hour later and didnt feel any movement he is due to hatch in 2 days

as long as it stays somewhat intact, he might make it.

Make sure your humidity is up, and you might want to wrap it loosely with a damp paper towel.  With that much membrane exposed, it could dry out really fast.
