    It will most likely expire. Many of us have done the same thing and it sucks.

    how badly is it bleeding?.. if it's not too bad it may recover.. so if it's minor bleeding and the chick is still alive just carefully put it back in the incubator and keep your fingers crossed that it survives

    You did the right thing. Just keep the humidity up, pray and cross you fingers. Sending you good hatching vibes. [​IMG]
