Were hatching chicks as well but this one is the most far along i don't know if i should help it or not. Is it safe if i just pull of some shell around the edge off???

how many made it from that batch in the end?
I currently have almost 20 in the bator that one started hatching a few days ago but died whilst hatching (i think it must have been the humidity because the membrane was quite dry?)
one had started to hatch 1 and a half days ago and has cracked open about the size of a thumb nail however it looks like the membrane is going a little dry (i have water in the bator and an extra bowl) would it hurt if i started chipping away at the shell? will the membrane go hard and stop the chick from breathing/moving?
