    I had a little EE piiping at about 5:30. She zipped and stopped moving. I haven't seen her egg wiggle or her push aganst the membrain. I thought maybie it was dry or shrink wrapped around her so I took a baby cotton swab (Softer than a normal Q-tip, and it gets thicker around the middle of the tip part) and wet it with warm water and gently rub water on the membrain exposed. She hasn't moved yet. The membrain is like a purple/ blue and you can see the veins. I nudged her with the Q-tip a while ago and she still hasn't moved [​IMG] is their anything I can do or do I need to leave her alone? help, tis is my first hatch and I've had 9 hatch out so far. My temp. is 98.5 and my humidity is 65%.

    -Thanks, Holly
