    The recent pipper is enlarging it's hole and there's blood under the membrane it broke through. Is that normal?

    No it is not, but DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! I can survive if you just leave it alone and let it absorb the sac......

    Quote:There are two other pippers that I can see, so I can't open the incubator. I don't want to risk them. Hoping it's all hatched in the morning!

    It seems to be too anxious for it's own good...

    yesss!!!!! i cannot stress enough, that you do not even touch it, it could possibly make it if left alone, just don't let it get shrink wrapped pleeeeeeeeezzzzzzz do not touch it, it will more than likely be a broken heart for you if you do try to help it, all i can say is keep high humidity

    No change since last night.


    She's still breathing and peeping now and then. We did get one hatch this morning --


    They're both Silkies, so I know the humidity must be okay. Haven't opened since lockdown and have no intention of doing it since we have 4 new pippers this morning. I sure hope this over-anxious little one makes it!!
