    As long as its not bleeding it should be fine.

    I used to raise parrots as a business, when the chicks peeping became weak I would assist its hatching. What I did was in a dark room, held a flashlight under it and would help chip away the shell around the pip line or where the egg tooth would crack making sure I didnt nick a blood vessel. The biggest thing is to make sure its staying warm and moist.

    It was a very easy mistake to make!!!! And the fact that it hadnt hatched yet may mean it might not have. I would wait a few hours and check it again. The biggest thing is keeping the humidity at the correct high rate so membrane doesnt dry out. How big is the hole?
    Also, I am often on WInsconsin Cheeseheads thread and there are many awesome people on it at all time that hatch-Im asking others on there that have a lot of expereince with hatching-to see if any of them jump over here with advice.
