had one born that ripped her intestines and bowel right out of her body getting out of her shell. ugh.. she is still alive in the incubator crying.... Argh!!!!!
she was crying loudly in the shell while trying to get out... she pipped all day yesterday with no cracks....... how long shall I let them pip in the shell? How long do you let a chick try and get out on it's own after it has broken through the shell just a bit and you can hear it pipping all day til the pip gets weaker?
I know you are not supposed to help a chick from the shell.... is it better not to and take the risk that happened to this one or is the risk of helping some greater?
