    My last silkie chick took 8 hours so I would just wait and see. I had to almost sit on my hand to not help lol She/he hatched successfully so I wouldn't worry yet

    That's great, congrats!! :D

    Sometimes it takes a long time to hatch, 4 hours is nothing to be concerned about. I'm sure the little one will make it out soon enough on his own.

    Post pics when they're all out!

    Congrats! As others have already said, just leave it be for now and let it work it's way out alone. 4 hours is very little time in chick hatching terms. Even though it feels like an ETERNITY for us humans standing on the outside and watching. Get LOTS of pics to show off when they are done too! [​IMG]
