    If it's wrong end, then it's not near the air cell, right? Did it pip through the shell?

    I don't see any goo and looks like a good clear hole so it can breathe... I'd leave it for now if it is peeping and sounds strong... got any others going? Have any pipped yet?

    As long as it doesn't sound distressed, gets weaker vs tired, use the others as a guideline... that one did it's internal and external pip at the same time, so it may still need longer to finish absorbing yolk... if it gets weak you can carefully expand the hole a bit, but really I'd wait til the others are zipping out...
