    A little black chick, has been working since last night to break free and he finally got his head out but now he's trying to get his butt out but isn't making much progress. I can see his feet when he tries to get out so it must be his tummy/hind end that is stuck. Should I just let him get himself out?

    Is it sort of shrink wrapped to the shell? How's the humidity level? I'm rooting for the chick.

    Thanks.
    The chick did get out, and hes wobbling around. I had to just encourage him A TON and tap on the bator window and after about an hour, he got out. [​IMG]
    Now, I got three more pips and A LOT of peeping!! [​IMG]
