These 2 eggs have been pipped since yesterday evening, and they haven't done anything else. It looks like they might have tried to zip, but not much. What should I do? I've never hatched chukars before, and I was told it was easy!!

This doesn't seem very easy to me!

Sorry I don't even know what a chukar looks like. Thought I would reply just because noone else has. Good luck! Wish I could of helped.

I HAVE HAD THEM PIP, THEN GET TIRED ZIPPING AND JUST SIT AND DIE...

IF ITS BEEN 24HRS YOU CAN TRY TO ASSIST BY ZIPPING THE REST OF THE SHELL AND CAREFULLY PEEL THE MEMBRANES OFF. IT'LL EITHER WORK, OR NOT. BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE THEY WILL DIE AFTER PIPPING IF THEY DONT FINISH THE HATCH. GOOD LUCK
