Before doing an assist I strongly recommend that you read this article by @Pyxis first.

This duckling was not making any progress, so I decided to help. Note the color of the membrane and the absence of any blood or veins. The key is to go slow, take very small pieces of shell off and to stop immediately if you see blood.
