    He started going down the side a little but then started going that way and that's when I saw the blood. He seems to have slow a lil so hopefully he will be ok.

    He probably will be. Just keep an eye on him. If he zips all the way down the egg, he made need an assist to get out but hopefully he'll zip around like he should when he's ready.

    I will thanks for all the help. I haven't seen anymore movement in a while so hopefully he has went to sleep to rest and has time to absorb.

    Ok, so that lil guy didn't make it. He has not moved, and I can see his beak but nothing.

    Oh, sorry to hear that. I was hoping he was just a bit malepositioned and would be able to finish.

    Looks like he busted his yolk. One of the other chicks knocked the egg over and yelliw/red fluid was comming out. But so far all the rest are great.

    Ruptured yolk will do it. I don't know of anyone personally that has had a chick with a ruptured yolk survive. [​IMG] for the rest.

    No poor lil guy didn't make it. I guess he got in to big if a hurry. But on a good not we have 14 out of the remaining 21 hatched and looking good.
