This baby has been seemingly stuck with its beak out the pip hole for about 18 hours or longer. I started to assist hatch this morning because I honestly thought it was dead but when I saw it move its beak open to breathe I put it back in incubator. Do I need to keep helping?? I doesn't retract its beak at all.

Thankyou all for your quick responses. I do however wish my question was asked quicker. I'm pretty sure the baby died shortly after I posted as I noticed beak stopped moving. Thankyou all anyway. I will ask sooner next time. There is 1 egg left to hatch let's hope that goes smoothly.
