    It never internally pipped, And then just pipped at the wrong end.

    I don't see movement, I don't hear peeping.

    What do I do, if anything.

    Thanks!

    Cool, grandchicks rock! If you are only day 20 I would wait, has it been pipped for 24 hours?

    Update: I pulled back some membrane to make sure it can breathe. It was panting there for a minute so I'm glad I did that. But it's alive and a beautiful Lemon color. :)

    No that's the crazy part! I wasn't expecting a pip. It hadn't pipped internally yet. I went to check humidity and there was a pip. So that's why I was worried, because it never internally pipped. At All.

    Maybe wrap it in a damp paper towel to keep the membrane moist.

    That's what I'll do and wait it out. There are a few big vessels in there still. I swear I always get these weird things happening.
