    The is blood on the membrane, I've put a damp cloth over the membrane, the chick has stopped hatching for the moment but still active?

    Anything else I can do to help, If not i'm just going to leave it and check up every 1/2 hour.

    Sometimes when the chick starts its pip and zipping out they can have hit a vein that hadn't fully closed that was along the shell line thats why they take their time zipping out...resting, learning to breathe and absorbing the yolk sac...

    Opening and closing the incubator is hard on them at this stage...

    Quote:I just checked the membrane and it's definatly changed positively since the last time I saw it. The blood has gone almost being absorbed by the chick. I will post pics video's once there is some action (like 12 hours away)
