    Was checking the nest tonight due to well....They are due to hatch anytime and was greeted by a smushed egg with some blood on the shell and I thought "poor thing almost made it.... "I picked it up and it PEEPED.... Its alive and holding its own for now in the incubatior. For how smushed the egg is there is not alot of blood and she ( its an emblem so I can tell) still needs to absorb the yoke... I wrapped the egg in damp paper towel so she does't dry out and we wait.... Hopefully she makes it . Send her some good vibes everyone...

    Be _really_ careful. I tried that with some of my eggs to increase the humidity and had a fan in the incubator. The fan cooled the towels and, in turn, chilled the babies. I was crushed.

    Good luck with your baby [​IMG]
