    My chick has been pipped scence yesterday. He is shrunk wrapped. pelled part of its egg. Its veins are not drying out. Is it safe to finish helping it out?

    I would wait longer before you help. If you see a lot of veins they can bleed if you help to much. It's probably not ready to come out yet, if it's able to get air it will be okay for a long time.

    It was sticky to the point it couldn't turn itself. I waited till the veins dried up some. I helped it out. It opened it's navel when it pulled loose from it's egg. It is doing fine now. We are watching it close.
