Hi Nell, thank you for trying to help out! : ) I didn't get any reply and wasn't sure what to do but hadn't seen any movement for hours and hours on the blue egg that was seeping so I took it out and removed a small piece of shell. I could tell that there didn't appear to be any movement so I took a little more shell and I could see that the beak looked as though there was some sticky dried up liquid inside that looked like the same stuff coming out of the shell. At that point I decided to take a little more of the shell of and it was very obvious that the chick had developed but for some reason died shortly after it started to pip.
We did candle the eggs and I did see movement before lock down. As I had mentioned it was 2 days early when the blue Ameraucana egg and dark brown Maran egg started to hatch. Good new is that the Black Copper Maran hatched out and is doing excellent!
Not sure if there is something I could've done to intervene so the Ameraucana chick wouldn't have died but I would love to know if anyone else has experienced anything like this and what they did. It seems as though the chick did choke on whatever the sticky liquid was that got in its beak and that was seeping out of the shell shortly after pipping.
Thanks again for responding Nell! It was a little nerve racking not knowing what to do and then checking back here on the forum and not seeing any replies I felt sort of helpless. Is there a better place or a better way to post questions when someone needs a quick answer? I did a search to see if anyone else had ever asked a similar question but wasn't finding anything.
