    just took an egg outside after candling with noi movement and when I cracked it saw a MOVING CHICK!!!!!

    Take a deep breath [​IMG] [​IMG]!!! If there is a lot of blood you will probably lose the chick I am sorry [​IMG] ! They don't have a lot and they bleed out quickly! Do you have more eggs? Raise the humidity and all you can do is wait! I am sure some one Knowledgeable will come along! I just did not want you to think you where alone [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Qiuckly put more water in ( humidity now 68%) and poured a little on the break and it moved SO if he/she survives

    I get up at the crack of dawn down here in South Texas but I am up even a little earlier than usual I have two silkie eggs waiting to hatch! There is a man here from England named Pete! He has several really good threads on helping chicks and hatching, humidity etc... He might can help or his threads might. I would just wait awhile and see if the bleeding stops. If it is bleeding and you try to take off any shell the bleeding could get worse. If you wait perhaps the vessels will recede and then you can help a little. Is it's beak out and able to get air?

    It is good you are being so brave i once had a chicken who was in the incubator, i didn't crack the egg even a little and he died on the way out so even if he may die i think its really good that you are giving him a chance at life. i can tell you really care about that chick. Good Luck!!

    I've had hatches at day 25 and 26. After that I toss them. Make sure you get advice from people who have been doing this a while or you'll end up waiting for 21 days and think it's all over. Chicks hatch when they're ready to hatch.

    Don't be upset about this at all. I think all of us have done it at one time or another.

    Are your eggs all still in lockdown and is your humidity right?

    Quote:Thanks!!! I do and so upset as we're hatching these for my 4yr old - he does shows and was winning but a fox got in and killed the lot - rooster, hens and his chicks [​IMG]

    He decided he was ready to go again and got him a new top quality trio but Australian Langshans aren't real broody - hence the incubator...

    for his sake I was hoping for 1 or 2 at least!!!
