    [​IMG] My white egg must have hit a vein, it pipped kind of low, not half way down, but close...and it has been sitting there all day long. It was the first one this morning- pipped, but with membrane still intact, just missing shell. Now the membrane has bright red blood across it.

    Did my lil peep commit suicide?

    Good luck with that low pipper. I am making a bed by the incubator. I don't want to miss it again. Still 1 chick. 4 pips.
