    This egg of mine has started to zip early this morning and it hasn't moved since. Should I intervene and see if I can assist it if it's still alive? One chick hatched but this one hasn't.

    I generally will pick a small hole in the egg if it's pipped. If you see blood than it's not ready to come out. If no blood I keep picking to see if I can assist.
