    Had an egg pipp last night( halfway through day 21) with no progress until we came home from church to find the egg zipped and the chick had died. I can see blood in it's abdomen and the water in the trays are now pink. Any thoughts? the chick looks way to big to have come from that shell but maybe it's just me and my newbie point of view.
