My this is my first hatch and they were due yesterday- day 21. None pipped or were showing any movement- so I quickly candled and they were all moving viable babies still. So back in lockdown they went. Today one pipped at 1:30pm- well I’ve been checking on it and it’s peeping, moving. Well I just went to check on them all and a second egg finally pipped and the first one has a good size hole started and I was watching his little beak moving through the glass of the bator and he moved and a spit of bright red blood shot out of the hole! I’ve studied and read everything before going into this and never once came across anything about blood like that- unless people help them prematurely. It’s still peeping like crazy and the blood seems to have stopped but I’m not sure if that’s normal- if not is there anything I can do?? I’m a nurse and not much scares me anymore- but these last 22 days have been torture lol. If anyone can answer this I would appreciate it!! Thank you!!!
