My vailsquail.com eggs 3 have hatched and 3 are piped 2 for 24 hours. Do I need to give them more time or help with some of the shell??? I hatched some of my own right before these with a 100 percent hatch. But I did help one of those out that turned out just fine. Need the help ASAP!! Thanks Dave

I've had them go for 30 hours and still make it several times, I've also had a lot of pipped chicks that died in the shell. This one is kinda going to have to be up to your discretion. I don't tend to help chicks that have only pipped. It's pretty common for chicks to pip and not make it. Several factors can affect that, including the way the eggs were handled in shipping. Wish I could be more helpful.
