    I have one chick that had started pipping 12 hours ago. I woke up this morning to check on the chicks and this one partially unzipped and has a pool of blood under it in the bator. When should I help? It is moving in the shell but a little disoriented. I do see its beak and it looks like its grasping for air. I have read all the dangers of helping too soon. What should I do?[​IMG]

    Could the other chicks that have hatched caused this from pecking at it or is this just something that happens?

    its the sign of a weak chick usually which mean that the hen or cockerel will never be any good and will always suffer :( and they will usually die from not having the strengh to cope with the world

    You can try applying gauze to the bleeding area. Gauze works wonders for my hatches.
