Chicks can take 24 hours or longer from pipping to zipping out of the shell. They are resting, learning to breathe and finishing absorbing their yolk sac. Patience.

Sorry. He had passed away before I could get to him. He was cute though. I wish he could have lived. He wasnt breathing and his chest wasnt totally closed and stuff was out, I kept lightly poking him and he didnt move, and the membrane was dry. So I guess it wasnt gods will. I am supprised how well I am taking it but there was nothing I could do. On the upside I still have four chicks out of eight and a few arent due till tomorrow, keep your fingers crossed. Thanks for the help, -Jay Ive learned some more about hatching.

I'm so sorry. I'm sure he didn't hatch completely due to this malformation. Poor thing. It happens, but it's still sad.


I choose to not help because of situations like this. It's a difficult decision to stick to...but it's a personal choice, of course.
