    Today is the start of day 24 for my test hatch for fertility. I had one internally pip yesterday morning before I got up. It never piped externally. I've read the assisted hatch guide and www giving it a small air hole to check to see if it was alive. I did not see movement so opened just a little more. I do see shallow breathing. No peeping. He is still in the shell as he had some veining but it was dried up enough I could pull the membrane over his head so he could breath a lot better. I've put him back and I hope he lives. Any other advice? His membrane was very thick and jelly like. I've never seen one like that before.
