I need advice-bad!!! I have an egg on day 22 that pipped about 36 hours ago. It pipped on the small end of the eggshell. There is a small opening in the membrane, so it is getting air. I still hear peeping, so I know the chick is ok, or was when I left for work this morning. My question is (deep breath) if there is no progress made when I get home this afternoon, should I start helping?? I've done it before, in fact, I've "delivered" 2 chicks, so I know how. Do you think it's too soon to help??
