    Hi,
    We have one that is pipped and now the pip is bleeding.
    What should we do?
    Thanks a million!

    I also had to remove with a baster some water as our humidity has climbed since they started hatching.

    I'd just leave it alone. I don't think there's probably anything you can do about it.

    Dont Worry! I just had one like that last hatch about a week ago. Actually, as the zipping went on, it looked red inside the membrane, but when it eventually hatched, that baby was perfect. [​IMG]

    It may have just hit a vane that is drying up, pretty normal when you hatch alot and see it from time to time. It should be fine.

    I had the same thing happen over the weekend and the chick was just fine - just required a lot of patience on my part.

    Hi,
    Thanks all.
    I am at work so I have no "choice" but to leave it alone. =]

    I hope it will be ok, I'll see in the morning.
    5 have hatched already, running all over and around the other eggs that haven't hatched, peeping and carrying on.

    Our humidity rose after they started hatching and I had to use a baster to get some of the water out. I hope it comes down some I don't want them to drown while trying to get out!
    Thanks again for all the insights.
    Angela
