Humidity could have been a bit higher. That may be the reason the chick was only able to zip half way. Up your humidity just a bit (without opening the bator if at all possible).

Are you using still air or forced air?

I have an LG still air that I keep at 99.5 degrees with the thermometer sitting on top of the eggs! I also had water on day 18....I do not know what the humidity is at though, I just fill the given spots. Mine usually hatch dead on 21 days.

Hope this helps!!
