    So this is my first time hatching time eggs, and I had a chick pip at 3:30pm yesterday, and I was watching it for the whole night, nothing else happened. Currently my chick has her beak out and peeping away, but nothing else. It’s almost been 24 hours and I’m worried. I’m prepared to help them hatch, only because I would beat myself up I feel this chick died in their shell. Can anyone give me some tips? I know it can take more than 24 hours, and that the yolk sac has to be absorbed, but I’m very worried for them.

    Thanks, L
