See attached photo. This chick is under broody mama and has pipped with a bit of the beak through the shell but there is no movement whatsoever, even after tapping/rocking very gently. No chirping. I can actually see inside the shell where it has pipped and I don't see any movement. Any chance this chick is still alive? Should I try to help?? Is the membrane dried out?
