    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]






    BYC has a very useful learning center [​IMG]



    As @Yourkshire Coop wrote you need to help out your new addition the wrong end hatches rarely go well on their own but with help you can make a difference and you only need to remove a little bit of the shell to help not the entire shell ...... [​IMG]


    If you need more help just ask again and I will give you some more advice .. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    Yes, you need to help this chick. It won't make it probably if it hatches out wrong.

    Best of luck!!

    Try not to panic:hugs. Have you candled the egg just to check it's not in the fat end air cell. What is it that makes you think it's at the wrong end? Can you hear anything from the egg? Also what kind of egg is it?

    Crack the egg open to see if there is anything and you will also be confirming life or no life [​IMG]
