this is my second batch of babies. Only one passed out of 12 last time (yay me) this time I'm hatching bantam cochin. all of the chicks have hatched and r out of there eggs but one. he has been attached for 28 hours now! Is there anything I can do to help? I know if u pull it the baby can bleed to death. But how long should I leave it. I would think some kind of infection could start? ?.....
