    Please can somebody help me.
    I had 4 eggs in the incubator. Two hatched earlier on today(they are still in there). One has pipped but the problem is another one has pipped and zipped but has failed to pierce the membrane apart from where it first pipped. It is now back to the beginning again and has occasionally poked its beak out of the original hole so i know it can breathe but what will happen to it? Will it go around again?
    I would open the incubator to help it but there is the egg which has only pipped to consider too. Any ideas, it's driving me insane watching it!

    Wait for the 4th to progress, monitor number 3 for signs of stress, once the other zips you can help the one who missed part of it's zip.
