    I don't know anything about hatching so don't exactly listen to me but I might just let it be and see what happens but I don't know?

    First, make sure its bill is free, it can breathe, and there is no bleeding. After that, the baby should hatch out fine. For me, when I have odd hatchers, I always peel away a piece of the membrane from their first pip; this way, I can monitor their bills and make sure they can breathe and don't snag a vein on the membrane. I have great success with this. In a few situations, not doing this has cost babies their lives.

    Here is sort of an image to show what I did with a goose who hatched upside down...

    She made it out fine! Zipped out all by herself. [​IMG]
