    that's a total judgement call... if you can assist in only a few seconds without lowering the humidity too far, then assist if a chick is in 'real' distress.

    I am not one to stand by and let a little one struggle that much, so I risk it, but I've only done this twice and my hatch rates aren't fabulous.
    Hope your little one gets better. [​IMG]
