https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=564605 This thread has some really great advice from Ridgerunner. I also posted some pictures with a basic timeline.


But, to recap, what I found was that the chick would poke a little bitty hole. Maybe make it a tiny bit bigger. Then do nothing for at least 12-15 hours. Then make it a little bigger. Then zip around and hatch out within about 15 minutes.
