    Probably. Some will take a couple days to work their way out. I'm not a big fan of "helping" chicks out. I prefer the vigorous ones make it out. This is an aspect of selection, as difficult as it may seem, but vital to producing only vigorous, healthy birds. We'd like to think of every egg producing a chick, but it doesn't happen quite that way. Give that chick some time.

    can you see its beak in that hole? Its pipped the wrong end, where is the air cell on this egg? if its not moving it must have ruptured the yolk and died or greenish stuff could be first poo,, you didnt make that hole right? it pipped there with its beak>?

    What is the humidity in your incubator?
    Make sure that is good even a little too high is better than too low
