Is a pip on the small side of the egg a death sentance?
Nope. I have had that problem with a few chicks and they came out just fine! Good luck!
No, just watch and make sure they have enough room to wiggle free.
She's made a pretty good size hole, but all I see (all day) is her little beak come out the same hole, she's not making any progress......
It can take up to 24 hours ......she has to rest, its hard work!!
I had one that made it out fine.
Last year I lost a few cochins that pipped on the wrong end. I waited too long to help. Just watch closely. The big breed chicks often can't turn in the narrow end to get all the way out and exhaust themselves....
Good luck !!

I had to intervene.
Once the little one gets up on her feet and I can get a picture - I'll post a long - full of pic's thread.
If you had to intervene because it has been in there a long time AND it was on the small end it could have trouble walking. Their legs can tend to bend kinda crazy so watch and make sure her feet are not turned under.
