    Take a Q-Tip and moisten the area where the shell is stuck. I should come loose. Just be careful and stop if you see any blood vessels.

    I have had one chick hatch. One of the others is not hatching. It had a blood spot on the shell I don’t know how it got it, and it appears to be wrapped in a clear film? I don’t know what is going on or if that is normal. The one that had the stuck membrane is bleeding and won’t break through. What should I do?

    The first chick look to be ok. Just taking no a break.. As long as it is breathing it should be fine. The other one you may want to moisten the membrane and maybe pull it open a little more. Maybe chip the shell clear around.

    I would leave them both for at least 1/2 hr... I don’t think the second one is nearly ready yet, maybe moisten the membrane with coconut oil instead, but give them some time.

    Hey everyone,
    I want to thank you all so much for your help. I have two healthy chicks so far and the one with the weird membrane is on its way! I will keep you all posted.

    This yellow stuff just came out of one of my newly hatched chicks. I am kind o worried I have been researching it for the past ten minutes and I can’t find anything that’s sounds like it! Is that normal? What is it?
