Does this assisted hatch look normal?

    I came to the school after church on Sunday and it had pipped a hole in the egg. I decided to move the eggs to see if any more we're going to hatch and needless to say found the pipped hole. I place it back on the grate and a little more egg came off. The membrane was espoused but no chick just chirping. Today (Monday) 24 hours later the chick had not made any changes and I assured in the hatch as the membrane was dry. Over the weekend the humidity went down to 55%. The membrane had a little blood and the chick isn't doing much except chirping and breathing. I will post a picture if I am able. What are the odds it will pull through?

    Is the yolk completely absorbed?
