    We have one chick that broke through the air cell early yesterday evening, he pipped around 7pm last night. He still has made no more progress, not even boke through the white layer. How long can he survive without making anym,ore progress or hatching?

    Thanks, Jennifer

    Have a look at the sticky thread on this section. It has a detailed guide on what to look for/do when a chick has a problem hatching. it helped me enormously!
    Good luck!
