okay so I am hatching eggs (which I do almost every year) but I am not sure what do do about when the chicks are bleeding.. I know the blood is from the veins that helped keep the chick alive in the egg and I know they dry out and everything after the chick hatches .. but why is it bleeding and is it going to harm the chick(s)

I'm afraid yes this can harm the chick. Has it fully hatched from the shell? Did you help it hatch? Where is the blood coming from?

The blood should ideally all be absorbed along with the yolk prior to the chick zipping and hatching from the shell.
