We are first time Hatcher’s. One of our eggs had pipped a hole and done nothing for more than 28 hours, the membrane was drying out and sticking to the chick. The chick was still peeping and moving but looked almost side ways and was making no progress. We decided to assist it in hatching because otherwise we were certain it was not going to make it. First we peeled off shell to create a zip then used a damp paper towel to keep it damp, hoping it would come out on its own. We waited a few hours and it didn’t do anything so we decided it needed full help out of the egg. Again we were certain if we didn’t help it for sure would not make it so we peeled away all shell and membrane that was sticking to the chick. After this the chick came out with no blood but in the bottom of the egg there was a strange brown gunk. The chick seems to have many problems including a large stomach, twitching legs with clenched toes, and a wry neck, we are worried it won’t make it. What should we do next? Update: we put him in a smaller confined space (a box) with a damp washcloth and he was able to stand up, the tremors/shaking went away and he can stand okay except for a toe that is curled under another, he is able to lift and support its neck now and we are not sure if the stomach has gotten smaller or not, right now that is our biggest worry. The little guy is peeping away and seems to be pretty alert he has jumped around a little. Although he has a very strong/bad smell and I don’t know if that is a problem or not. We are having lots of hope and giving the little guys tons of TLC! Any other suggestions.
