    I got pipping and peeping but 1 actually the biggest chunk of shell off is in the wrong side of egg not in the aircell and membrane still intact, is there anything I should do for this chick? will he drown?

    Sorry, I'm pretty new. But I think your best bet is to leave it alone.

    One of my eggs pipped out a large chunk of shell and it was at least 12 hours later before the membrane was pierced. The chick ended up hatching fine about an hour after that.

    Good luck,
    Deb
