    Day 23, and the 7th egg pipped last night, but showing some blood. It is not white like the others were. What should I do? Very worried...thx

    I can see her breathing, but she seems stuck....did the shell dry out???? Humidity is at 75% Temp is fluctating between 99.9 and 102 in a still air.

    The pics are from phone camera, so they are not very clear.

    Try taking some warm water and spray the opening in the shell and keep that menbrane moist.

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. I have been afraid to open the incubator.

    Thanks, it hatched and there was a long yolk sac attached until recent. It has finally dried up and fell off.
