I have a chick that has a pip hole and all kind of cracks around it. I didn't do it. The chick is moving and chirping a lot. I'm worried because its not making progress. Should I take the shell pieces off? Is the membrane dry? Help Please!
Also I have a chick with only a pip hole and the membrane is golden and looks dry. Whats wrong with it and what do I do?

Please could you post a pic?

From initial external pip hole it can take up to 24 hours before the chick zips the shell & hatches. During the 24 hours they spend a lot of time resting, absorbing yolk & blood vessels. If they hatch too early can can bleed out if they have not absorbed everything.
