    Hi everyone,
    Well this is my first baby out of 23 eggs, and to say that she hasn't given me and my partner a sleepless night would be an understatement.
    In the last 24 hours she pretty much pipped and then has not been able to break through.
    My partner assisted this morning but only to help a little with the shell, as we are unsure if she is in a weird position. (still cant see).
    She has pipped to the centre of the egg, and this was the concern!
    The shell was extremely tough.
    I am hoping that the membrane is a good colour, and if I may need to wet it with a cotton tip?
    All help and assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I see you've already posted under the Incubating & Hatching Eggs forum which is where I was going to direct you.

    Good luck with your hatch!
