I had one egg that pipped early yesterday. As of about 3:00 this afternoon, the chick hadn't managed to zip. Since I knew that I'd had humidity problems with this one (moved the hatcher, spilled the water, hum went WAY up, then WAY down ... didn't stabilize until after chick pipped) I decided the chick needed help so I got some warm water, a shop towel, and a tweezer and sat down and hatched the chick. The membrane was VERY tough ... like leather. Also, the chick was already dry ... all the liquid had congealed and literally glued the chick to the membrane and had also glued one eye shut, I left that alone, figured it would come open on its own. I had a devil of a time getting the chick free. The yolk was completely absorbed and there was no bleeding what-so-ever so the chick was definitely ready to come out. After he was free I put him back in the hatcher, he just laid there like he was dead. I didn't think he was going to make it, but several minutes later he started flopping around and eventually got his feet under him. Now, 4 or so hours later, the chick still looks gooey, but is dry and is starting to fluff out. The eye has come open and he walks around just fine. He seems to be doing well, but he hasn't stopped peeping since I put him in the brooder. He is with one other serama mutt chick and a hamburg with a bum leg (both about 4 days old). I have dipped his beak a couple times, but he hasn't gone for either food or water on his own (which doesn't worry me yet). I have a red light on the brooder placed in such a way that it only hits the front corner, temp in that corner shows at 91*. They have plenty of area to get out of the heat if they want. There is crushed chick starter scattered on the paper towel and a quail waterer with fresh water. Can't think of anything else that would be relevant except that he also has curled toes. Should I worry that there is something wrong? I don't remember the other chicks making this much noise. He just never quits, which is fine if there is nothing wrong ... I can deal with the noise, I'm just worried about the little fella.
