I'm trying to stay calm but not easy. I've helped peachicks out of shells but have never hatched Swan or Goose eggs. I have 2 Black Swan eggs that were well into the air sac Sunday when I put them in the hatcher. Yesterday I heard chirps so decided to candled. I'd been told to at least make a little hole since they'd been in the air sac so long using up that oxygen. I did so and could see a beak up against the hole so made it a little larger then left it alone. That little creature wants out so bad if it were a peachick it would be time to help it out without any issues so took a little more shell off and saw veins wtih blood. Stopped. I might add I can't peal the shell away easily. Its THICK & HARD. Don't see how a chick could break through it. I used tweezers to break a little piece away at a time. Hole now is probably the size of a quarter and membrane and edge of membrane is vein free but when I put a q-tip up under it there is a dark gunk. Is that normal or is it blood mixing with normal gunk? A peachick would be drying out and I'd be struggling to keep the membrane from drying and sticking to the chick. This is so different then my expertise. The chick has now put a foot up against the hole next to it's beak. I only know to leave it alone because of the dark gunk but is that something normal with a hatching swan? The chick in the other egg has moved it's beak to the tiny tiny hole. PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks much.
