    one of my silkies just pipped! The shell piece is still on, just a crack/triangle. Question though, pipped area looks a little red....maybe a little blood behind the membrane?

    Congrats on your pip! It's always so exciting when they start to hatch! The red you are seeing is more than likely the membrane. I've had that happen before and some have made it out of the shell okay and some did not. You'll have to wait and see. Sending lots and lots of good hatching vibes your direction!
