This is not only my 1st hatch but my 1st post. Hi! ;)
I have gained a lot of knowledge and done much research on this site! You guys are a library of info and I love it!!!!
My incubator eggs started hatching yesterday, a little late (day 24) but still hatching. 3 pipped yesterday and 1 was breech (died) and the other 2 hatched early this morning. Then 3 more pipped this morning and 2 have hatched this evening. The 4th egg to hatch kind of came out wonky. Almost like it unzipped halfway and then struggled to push itself out the side. That may be normal, I have no idea. Anyway, it really seemed to have a rough time, so it rests a lot, on its back. The 3/4 egg shell is still attached to its naval, so when it gets up and tries to move around, it gets flipped and even more wore out. Will this eventually snap off? Am I worrying over nothing? I know it needs to rest, and I know there is really nothing I can do. It just seems so bad that it keeps falling asleep on its back because it just can't get up with the shell attached.
Thanks in Advance! I'm a newbie, so bear with my dumb question =)
