Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by equine chick, May 4, 2008.

  1. My one chick who is going on day 24 started hatching today. Her other hatch mates hatched friday. There was very little movement and at times it seemed like she was struggling. The membrane was getting white so intervene I did. my humidity was at 65% but I pulled away the membrane and soaked it til it loosened and it seemed she was going towards the bottom of the shell. She is breathing fine, rolling herself around. She is a white americauna but part of her yolk, looks scrambled like and part of her intestine is bulging. Is this normal? There was no bleeding from her and though I know I did the right thing, I hope she will be okay.
