Chick zipping question-normal?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Have brinsea 20 advanced with hygrometer. Woke up to day 21 and a chick like below. Humidity has stayed a constant 65% the membrane inside looks a little white and not wet. Does this look like normal zipping? Just a big hole? I'm worried the chick is stuck and not getting anywhere or can't move and that's why there is a hole instead of a zip.

Sometimes they do just make the pip hole bigger before they start to zip so I would not be worried yet. They can be externally pipped for up to 24 hours before starting the zip process.
How long has the chick been like this? Is it still peeping and moving?
