    We have 6 chicks in my hubby's home-made incubator. They starting breaking through the shell this morning (is that pipping?) My question is, when they break through their sac is there supposed to be a small (and I mean small) amount of blood? Please tell us they are okay! [​IMG] We are anxiously awaiting their final breakthrough!! [​IMG]

    I've never seen it before. BUT, I saw a thread last week where someone had one like that. I believe it turned out ok.

    Good luck!

    to me it looks like where the chick broke through the membrane and it went through a small blood vein...all 6 are making their wonderful peeping noise! [​IMG]

    Sound normal to me! Hatching is messy. Good luck!
