So, my hen abandoned a pipped egg. The chick inside is moving around and peeping, but he won't hatch.

There are lots of blood vessels in the egg, so I don't know if I should help or not. He's fully formed, as far as I know.

 

What do I do?

Won't be on Monday and Tuesday.

The kingdom of the sky had been peaceful for centuries, but a man named Zant was prepared to change that.
