    I have had a successful first hatch. So far 16 of 22 but one has been chipping out since last night. She made progress but the part where the shell fell off is dry. I moistened a qtip and rubbed it on there quick. She is breathing and responds to my voice. But the membrane seems dried to her. Especially when she is pushing. I have a heating pad ready and damp cloth and warm water. Ps. The humidity is 70 in the bator. First time - please help. See the pic. [​IMG]

    She's out now with my help. It was dried to her. There is one more piece of egg shell on her mid back and I don't want to pull it off. Hoping to leave her in the moist Bator. Will it fall off eventually? [​IMG]
