    I have a silkie cochan mix that pipped yesterday afternoon and this morning put a m&m size hole in the tiny egg. the chick is cheeping and sticking her beak out but does not seem to be doing much else it has been this way for about 7 hours. my question is will this chick figure out and zip? The membrane looks good the humidity is at 78%. Any help would be awesome as I would love to see this little guy make it out.

    Chicks can take 24 hours to zip after the pip, so I wouldn't worry too much as long as they seem strong. I want to say mine average between 12-16 hours. I've had a couple that were zipping before I realized they had pipped, but mostly I'm just biting my nails and waiting and waiting and waiting...lol
    I play youtube videos of chicks pipping on my phone by the bator to motive them...lol
