First time hatcher CLASS PROJECT

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I've done a lot of research both before and after setting the eggs for incubation. It's day 21 and the students are excited to start seeing some action.

One egg hatched and a VERY active chick emerged. He rearranged just about every egg in the bator. The choice was made to remove him since he hadn't settled down and was overturning eggs that already pipped.

QUESTION- There is an egg that pipped right in the middle of the egg no where near the air cell. He's active, but I'm very concerned he won't be able to unzip.

Should I leave him be or try a small assist? His beak pokes, but nothing much else so far.

Picture should be attached.

Don't intervene till after 24 hours after pip
