I had to save my eggs from the hen two days ago because she was killing them as they hatched, and I have no incubator. Last night, I helped one hatch. This morning, three had pipped, but one was dead. I don't know at what point I should help the two remianing pipped chicks since the membrane is drying and I've had so many complications. Two more eggs haven't pipped, but were alive as of yesterday. Should I pip the eggs myself to see if the chicks are still alive? Will this give them a better chance of survival?
