    Thank you. I examined it closer with the flashlight and put on my glasses :gig
    There's clearly an outward bulge but, it's pipped at the small end :(

    Yes, it’s a pip. If it were mine, I’d give it a while and if it doesn’t make any progress maybe chip off a piece of the shell, if it still doesn’t make much progress you may (or may not) have to assist. GOOD LUCK!! :fl

    If chicky's made that much progress being upside down, I think they're going to be okay. One of mine pipped like that, zipped out no problem. Just keep an eye on them. Wishing you luck! :fl
