    This egg was accidentally put into he incubator upside down (it was hard to tell which end was the point). Unfortunately I did not notice the air sac location till I was locking down (it's my first time)

    The chick has pipped totally opposite from the air sac and has not yet broken the membrane. Just a tiny bit of shell has been knocked away.

    What should I do? I want to save if at all possible. I am kinda panicking that he/she will drown?

    Thanks!
