My eggs are hatching and one of the eggs have irregular pips and ive noticed in the last hour one it has a little bit of liquid coming out and a drop of blood but this has stopped and just wondering if this is common or not. any help much appreciated

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?
I have no idea if it did I usually pour boiling hot water through my incubator to sterilize it
How's the chick doing? I would just make sure if can breath and leave it be. Is today day 21?
the chick passed away and yesterday sadly my assistance was too late. I had seven chicks hatch successfully and I have 7 more that hasnt pip yet and yesterday was day 21.
Thanks peep-chicken and atleast if I see it next time ill know what to do
