It looks like the remainder of my chicks have pipped and are trying to hatch. I had six out of eleven hatch yesterday (day 20, two pipped on day 19) and they are very wild in the incubator. I am worried about one of the chicks that is trying to hatch. It has half way “unzipped” the egg but has not made any progress in several hours and I’m wondering/afraid it’s stuck, if not dead. I am not able to get a clear picture of it because of all the other chicks running around and was wondering, now that the remaining chicks have pipped, can I remove the hatched chicks so I can better assess the one I’m worried about? Or should I stick to lockdown until tomorrow and hope for the best in regards to the other chick?
