YES!!!! Great job!!! See! Better than mother hen would have done! Fumbling fingers may have dropped the egg but it's those opposable thumbs that saved the day, lol, I'd like to see a hen try that.Wow there was lots of blood from my drop. It also popped a vessel near the air cell with its leg it looks like.
It was positioned upside down. I imagine this egg was too small?
Could my drop actually have saved it by getting it air? Lol. I’m going to tell myself that.
Had a freshly absorbed yolk just hanging on, so I left it to come off on its own but did not think it needed to be in a cup. I think it’s going to make it. Thanks for helping, everyone.

Yes @aart i have! This summer I did 100 or so shipped eggs and it was a disaster I had so many issues and so many necessary assists with sticky chicks and shrink wraps and all the rest. I’ve been running these broiler eggs in the incubator to see if it’s me or the eggs.
I’m removing this from the tally because I shouldn’t have set that small of an egg with a broiler chick inside of it anyway. If I do that, I’m at 100% no assist hatch rate so far.
I think shipping eggs does so much to the egg we will never totally understand.
