Turns out my humidity must have been out and the screen was lying. I over 2 days late, I have managed to hatch 4 chicks (out of the original 10) 3 were declared dead before internal pip - my conclusion, not being able to reach the right position and eventual drowning/suffocation. I still have 2 left in the incubator (included in the original 10) 1 is chilling (I made a slightly larger hole after it externally pipped, through fear of suffocation) And number 2 is in a bad place... He/she is heading down the 'wrong position/eventual drowning' route. In panic of another case of suffocation,mans noticing the lack of movement and non external pip, i pierced the shell still the air sack and had a peek. It was round the wrong way. But now I'm stuck with the dilemma of knowing the reason for this is due to too much humidity, but now how to stop the membrane from vacuum packing him. Veins are getting smaller but still would bleed to death if I were to assist. The minute it reaches the point where's blood and yolk are absorbed, the minute he wants to take air, the minute he realises he's facing the wrong way and he dies. So I sit, going backwards and forwards, to day has come to a halt as I watch for signs that the heart beat is slowly and the veins look hair-strand thin for me to stretch away at the other end to make a breathing space.... My moly other struggler, chick number 3 almost died in my hand when a bit of cord from the yolk got either pecked or stood on by another chick and blood came POURING OUT he was crying and crying and I picked up and literally had to HOLD THE CORD so he didn't bleed to death. But it's 10 degrees C in my house and he was crying from the cold, still wet from the egg, so in a panic, I stuck him in the only place I knew.. My cleavage. He went quiet straight away and I laughed and said, 'figures'... I can't walk away and leave them in my incubator to fluff up as this manual one has no space and it's grubby from the others hatching... Eventually the bleeding stopped but I was so worried the other chicks would peck him, I stuck him down the side of my automatic incubator (I have 2 bators going) which has gaps down the side. He's thrashing around like mad. He must have lost half a tsp of blood, which is probably the equivalent of several pints to us. I can't believe he's not dead. But he's not happy by any means, being wedged down the side of the egg tray. But he's safe from being pecked and warm... I have a question, if the chicks chest if going up and down in the egg, does that mean he's breathing air? My chick number 2 in the egg facing the wrong way, his chest goes up and down, I by accidentally made a tear in the membrane (that bled and I thought I'd killed it) so I thought maybe he is breathing air with his lungs now? If anyone has any advice please help!
