No, especially if you saw blood.

Sometimes, maybe often, they pip before they have totally dried up the blood vessels outside their bodies and done all the other things they need to do before they zip. Just because they hit a blood vessel when they pip does not mean they are going to bleed to death. Give that chick time to dry up the blood vessels and do other things it needs to do before it zips. That gives it the best chance.

Thank you, I am thinking now after a quick candle that he might have started in the wrong place, the candle showed me a internal pip into the air sac, which is a way away from there the first is. I am crossing my fingers that that is all it was.. he's in the incubator, humidity is high to help keep the membrane from drying out.

:love:wootMy picture isn't the best, the incubator he's in is one of those with the plastic sides, but we have a hatch, have heard the other one chirping, not out of the shell yet.. Thank you everyone.. when I saw blood I panicked.
