    I had a little baby who was struggling to get herself out of her egg. My dad ( a renouned, retired, quail breeder) told me to help her out. She was to big/ to weak to get out of her egg. I got her out and she is currently crawling around in the 'bator. I'm not one for gory stuff like that but i cut the membrain, and chipped away the shell and help her free her legs and head. It was an amazing think to see her pop out.

    Good job on the save. Most likely would have been a goner without help.
