I couldn't wait! I had a chick pip under the hen today and it feels like it has been at least 23 days so I was upset when I started seeing broken fertile undeveloped and clear eggs. well this morning I found another broken and almost fed it to the dogs when it chirped so i put it back .when I checked it again about 6 hrs later there was no progress so I tried to help it . it got more active as i did and finally when I got around the egg the chick kicked and popped out squeaking . I brought it inside and put it on heat in a plastic food container with a paper towel above it and sprayed the paper towel lightly .it has been peeping on and off and seems strong enough but i am worried that there was a bit of blood . I disinfected the umbilicus to prevent infection, is there anything else I should do for it . It was a little shrink wrapped and the membrane was tough enough for me to get through that I worry about the rest of the eggs. There was a little un absorbed yolk and blod in one end of the shell (near it's rear). these shells are hard too. Serama if you are wondering. I'll pu up pics soon.
