    I had two araucana eggs in lockdown yesterday. The first one pipped, zipped, made it out and died about a half hour later. It was day20. Today is day 21 and the second one is externally pipped as I will show in the following picture. It's hard to see but the inner membrane right inside the shell is a brown, almost looks like a dried leaf. It's just in the small spot at the bottom of the pip. It was like this when I woke up today. Humidity was 65% and I had been keeping it around 72-74%. I now have the humidity up to 72%. I'm thinking I should just let this little guy go to do his thing for now. What does everyone else think?

    And is he or she trying to zip or is this still just a pip?
