    Hello! My last post was about my egg that I almost threw out...but this time I have a different question. When I put my egg back in the Incubator, I noticed that the chick was breathing! But isn't that impossible if it hasn't internally pipped? :confused: 1507422193442-360393239.jpg

    And also, do the chicks pip the air sac, then take their beak out of it to zip?
