    Update: So 8 hatched babies 3 eggs that are pipped halfway through. One baby has airsac broke. And then 2 eggs I have a feeling won't make it. But it's ok because we'll most likely have 12 out of the 14 alive

    So we have 11 hatched with mom, I have the finalone that I am keeping under a lamp right now. I think its shell got stepped on because it was still in the hatching process last night and was shattered this morning. Baby is doing good so far. Wrapped in a warm damp towel under the lamp talking away. Just hoping there was no damage. As for the 2 eggs that looked like they weren't ready they didn't make it. Turns out due to them being malpositioned they didn't develop properly:(. Good news is she has 11 maybe 12 babies and she's doing such a great job. Pictures to come later today

    I wrapped it to help with humidity as it's still intact to the shell partially and wanted to make sure it doesn't get stuck to the baby. Should I just remove it from the shell the rest of the way? I dont really see any red blood vessels except where its umbilical is. I just didn't want to pull its shell off and cause it to bleed out or anything. And I can't get a bator unless ordering from Amazon. Tractor supply that's near me doesn't have them in stock unfortunately
