    On the MN prairie.
    I would let it be. If you open the incubator you will lose valuable humidity and could jeopardize the rest of the eggs.

    Hi, it will be fine dont worry. It has just pipped a blood vessel which will soon dry up with the humidity. Your baby is just been a bit impatient [​IMG] Good luck..
