So as of yesterday it was hatch day!! My first chick pipped thursday night and hatched out sometime during the day on friday.
Well, one of the other eggs pipped early friday morning just barely a external pip, then sometime friday afternoon she/he managed to get the beak through to breathe. since then VERY little progress has been made. i managed to chip away some of the shell since it seemed to have not made any progress within the last 24 hours. I placed the egg back in the bator with a damp paper towel under the egg which also raised the humidity. I noticed that the white membrane seemed to be a tan color so i assumed it has dried out a bit.
However, the other chick PERSITS on pecking its sibling in the face so i place a tin can in the bator and placed the hatching in progress egg in it so the other chick would stop pecking it! My question is, do i need to help this little chick out?? This is my very first time incubating and hatching chicks. I have done tons of research on incubating and hatching before hand but i am a nervous wreck over this little chick! Please help!!!!
