    I just had a chick pip at skinny side of egg. Will this cause problems for it to get out of egg? Never had this problem before. Is there anything I can do?

    Not to sugar coat it, yes there will likely be a problem. I do not recommend helping the chick out, it will likely die with or without help. That's not to say that said chick won't hatch healthy and normal though, but I wouldn't count on it. Sorry for your stress during your hatch!

    Well out of all the ones that have piped so far this one is doing the best. its has a big hole out and the outside membrane has a tear in it and can see a little beak every once in awhile!! This this one will make it.

    Hearing chickie peeps is supposed to encourage them - do you have any young peepsters that might oblige?
