    I have placed 4 peahen Eggs in incubator 3 of them hatched successfully 2 days ago, i candle the 4th egg today but there was no sign of any movement and the air sac was small i thought the chick died i opened the egg from big end and noticed the chick is alive and still incomplete as the membrane hurts there was some blood i took a tape and close the hole and put it back in the incubator. I didn't remove the membrane some area of membrane hurts while opening the shell. Will the chick develop complete and hatch or rather die?
