    so i have a few ameracauna eggs in the incubator...hatch date isnt until saturday and this evening i see a beak....very perplexing...so i investigate......

    i was breathing and moving around and then it came out about 2 hours later with his guts hanging out his side through a hole just behind his wing...poor thing died about 2 minutes later..anyone else see this?
