    I have an egg that has pipped on the small end of the far as I can tell it is still alive but I can see blood where it has pipped. Any advice or experience with this?

    I have hatched eggs that pipped in the wrong end. They can hatch out ok. The blood .... it must have hit a blood vessle when it pipped. It can still be ok with just a speck of blood loss.

    Good luck!
