    Can you get a picture of the pip? after 36 hours it likely is stuck.

    is it the one on the top? B? looks like it might have missed the air cell and gone straight to the shell. the membrane doesn't look dried out. give it to 48 hours post pipping. If it hasn't hatched by then it'll be time to go in and help.

    I would start peeling the egg shell back a little at a time. The chick is probably malpositioned and can't zip.

    I carefully pulled some shell back and stopped here. What do y'all think?
