Where can I post this for help? Today is day 23, I put a small hole in the top for air but ended up making it bigger so I could see position this morning but I can't tell. Its been about 12 hours and its chirping quite loud. What do I do now? Its in a still incubator with a wet paper towel around it.

Can anyone tell if its postponed right?

It pipped but still looks upside down.

I would let it go make sure that it does not dry out. My main worry would be the Membranes would dry and shrink around it and suffocate it. They come out in the weirdest position. So that one is fine in that position. I have had chicks hatch at day 25 and 26.

keep coconut oil on the membrane. She still has a ways to go. Don't let the oil reach her beak. Be patient. She's alive and breathing air. Just keep an eye on things and let those veins dry up on their own.

This is the chick this morning and it still has a tiny bit of egg sac attached to the naval.

Keep an eye on it. It did not absorb the yolk all the way. There is a good chance it might not make it. When ever I had one like that most of the time they did not make it. Glad it is out. If it lays there an not move much might have a better chance of maybe absorbing the yolk.

Its up and moving! Finally detached from the egg. I can only see it through my incubator camera but it looks to be doing OK.
