    Hi! So I had a chick pip on the wrong side of the egg. He had broken the shell but the membrane was still intact. I decided to help a little and broke the membrane so that the chick could breath. It started to bleed a bit so I quickly put it back in the incubator. It's been twelve hours and from what I can see he is doing fine and moving his little beak, but he hasn't made any progress with zipping. What should I do now?
