i had ta help one pipped like that a week ago the chick is doing great if you help them hatch let them be pipped a while bc they might still be obsorbing yolk, i made sure they had a clear hole to breath out of then started from the back bc i didnt wantt o mess up the belly button area bc they could bleed out ( i had a chick hatch out and kick its cord and it cut it and bled out very sad) if it doesnt seem very successful on its own hatching id help it out

If he's made a hole in the shell he can likely breathe. Is it only the membrane that is bloody, or is blood actually oozing out? A bloody membrane is ok. I wouldn't worry too much, give it time and see what happens. Chicks are pretty resilient.

He has probably just hit a small vein in the membrane area and will be fine.

it hatched and is doing good, as are all the rest. i guess it wasnt that big of a deal but since ive never had it happen before it kinda scarred me.

thanks for the advice though
