6 of this little guys buddies hatched yesterday (Cream Legbars) and this morning we found him in this state. Now 5 hours later nothing has changed. I can still see it's little body breathing in there, but does that look like he's crusted to the shell? I don't want to disturb him if he's ok, but if he's stuck what should i do? BTW, this is our first time incubating...we've raised lots of chicks under a hen but this time our broody gave up so we rushed out and bought an incubator and put them in. I was a little skeptical of the success rate we'd have and i'm very pleased to see that so far almost 1/2 have hatched. We did have one die in it's shell. The hole it poked has crusted over and there's no movement. So far the rest of the eggs have no cracks or pips and they're completely still so I assume those are not going to do anything.
