    Leave it alone it will come out when it is ready some times it might take an extra day I helped one out before and it killed it so just candle the egg and see it u c it moving and the beak should be in the air cell

    I second that response [​IMG] I did not help mine and it was fine. It was 24 hours after i heard it peeping that it hatched. Be patient.
     
  4. Just wait. They hatch when they are ready and not one second earlier, lol. [​IMG]
