So, I am amazed I didn't notice this sooner with my 5th egg, but it has pipped in the middle of the egg instead of at the air sac which explained the short bleeding when I was clearing some 'dried' membrane away from the piphole, which was brown due to dried blood. The chick has air as it has made a hole (which I made a little bigger) but it is having issues hatching.

It is very vocal and lively, so I put it back in the incubator as I don't want to risk assisting too soon. While I was shining the torch through the air sac for a good look though, I did see the bump that was it's beak move upwards towards the air sac, so I might have clued it in on what to do hopefully, but am still very worried and would like some advice.

It pipped sometime last night and it is evening now.

Protective mama hen and her baby, she is completely fine with me, she just dislikes the camera. The rest of the chicks are under her.
