Hi all, So my one egg-yet-to-hatch is having problems! It pipped about 28 hours ago. We realized that it was shrink wrapped a couple of hours ago, after we had to help the one before it out of its shrink wrapped membrane/shell (which went wonderfully & he/she is very healthy). Yes, I imagine the humidity got too low... Thought this one might not have made it, no sound or movement since the initial pip 28 hours ago. So I picked it up to confirm that it was dead and "Peep peep"! So I immediately grabbed some very warm water & a Q tip and moistened up the pip site. I carefully pulled back the shell & could see its head, with a large full vein next to it. I wrapped it in a warm moist towel & put it back into the incubator. I read to wait 2 hours and then try again to see if the yolk & veins have dried up, but the vein is still full and the chick is showing no signs of wanting out. So now its been about 28 hours, 2 hours after I helped it out, still a fat vein. I guess I just have to wait? Do chicks ever not finish their yolk, and why would that happen? Possibly because it dried out? I am growing grey hairs here & would really appreciate some feedback! Thanks!
