    Just spent an hour trying to help this chick it wasnt chirping and I rang a friend and he helped me and the poor chick in the egg she couldnt get air I think the liquid was like egg white it had it stuck around its beak and couldnt move so I think she ran out of energy and and when the liquid got hard it held her beak and stopped her getting air so I just gaveher a burial but on an upside half of my eggs have hatched today

    I had the sane issue with my last hatch and my hatch rate was 1/12. I was told it was bacteria, from when my bator fell and a egg broke. Did bacteria somehow get in there?
