I have eight eggs in lockdown. day 25 was Saturday, Sunday was day 26 and I started hearing a peachick about 0900 on Sunday morning and one of the eggs was rocking all over the place. Anyway when I left for work this morning at 0600 there was still no holes in the egg but I could hear the chick. My question is when I get home tonight about 1800 (6PM) and there is still no progress with the chick getting out of the egg should I help it any? I figure if it's still alive by then it would be 33 hours with no progress getting out. Again when I get home if its out or at least is making progress I would leave it alone but if not I would think 33 hours is a long time to make no progress. Thanks for your help. Like to add that a couple of weeks ago I had three eggs in lockdown and two pipped with one egg making a hole in the egg and I didn't help and they both died, so this is why I feel I should help this time.
