    Help, the baby pipped on the wrong end. Will this cause him to die. I hear him chipping really quietly. When candling all the air sacs were are the big end. What do I do?

    How long has it been scence it pipped? Can it get air through the pip? If it hasnt been that long scence it pipped and can get air leave it alone. Give it time to try and get out on its own. If you try to help it out you have to be very very carefull. If you bust a vein it can bleed to death.I had one pip on the wrong end last weekend. I waited a day then helped it out. It is doing fine.
