post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there, Im new to this site and looking for some much needed advice. I have a pipped egg but it has been 12+ hours now and there is no noise or movement and the membrane around the hole is looking dry and brown. I am really worried that chick has died any advice would be great 😬

There's a good chance. I'd take it out moisten the membrane and chip away the shell and find out.  It's not uncommon for chicks to take up to 24 hours to hatch, but the more membrane exposed while they wait, the greater the chance of it drying out and gluing  to the chick keeping it from progressing and brown/yellowish membrane does signify drying out.
