    So i have a white faced Spanish 1/2 way hatched. I noticed he was gasping,so I decided to try and help. Got a bit unpeeled and found his crop was full of air?? So I gently massaged it to get air out. He is now breathing normal, but I'm not sure he had absorbed all of yolk, so I left the bottom half of shell alone. Anything I can or should do so he'll survive this? There are 7 others that have fully hatched and seem fine??

    Thanks
