SUCCESS! We were right. He was stuck in two places, but the moist Qtip did the trick! He's out and looks good. Many thanks!

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3:22-26 (ESV)

Phew! I'm so pleased for you woot.gif

He will probably be very tired now as it will have used a lot of energy trying to escape.

Good luck with him and get some sleep now!!

Keep us posted on how he gets on.

This whole hatch has been tough. I got 14 special eggs shipped after waiting for months and paying $$s, and though they are well packed, 3 arrived cracked, and only 2 made it to lockdown. My husband calls the two eggs Adam and Eve, because these were to be foundation birds for a new flock. So far, no motion from the second egg... but am so glad to have one chick! He's peeping away: maybe he'll encourage his mate to come on out!

This JUST happened to us on Easter Day. BIG chick that had pipped then zipped for 8+ hours. Peeping was less so I took him out and assisted. He is now 5 days old and great! 2 days of splay/spraddle leg taping and he's awesome now smile.png
