    I'm new to hatching. Noticed some blood by open pip just now. Chick is peeping, but seems like a lot of blood. HELP!!

    I have had the same problem with a lot of hatches. The blood may not be a problem and never has for me. I've had them pip and be completely watered down with what looked like blood. If there are exposed blood vessels put some cornstarch on it to help stop bleeding.

    I would just leave it alone and let it do its thing. Could just be a little extra that hasn't absorbed yet.

    I have them under a broody hen. She is eating part of the shell now. The membrane inside seems thick. The chicks beak is totally exposed to air, now I can see the side of the face. This is a day early from expected.
