Well, anyone who reads the post on setting on the 24th will know that I mentioned earlier Friday evening that I found an egg that seemed to have piped BUT the hole in the egg was about the size of a dime. I left the chick in the nest for a few more hours and went back to check, he had made no more progress on exiting the egg. The membrane has ziploc-ed all but his beak and surrounding face. I am guessing he wasnt in the best place under the hen... ANYWAY...I lost a chick last year the same way and I wasnt having any of that this time, so I grabbed the egg and brought it in, grabbed that tweezers and warm water and qtips and went to it, slow and steady and careful. There was no way I was not gonna try to rescue this little guy. Anywho after an hour of working at it and several hours of keeping him surrounded with a heating pad he's pretty much good as new, all but for the "after birth" I cant seem to get it all off of him so he looks like a sloppy mess. Just that stickyness has dried up but other than that....hes FANTASTIC! I am sooooo happy and proud....I wasnt sure I could do it but so far so good! Here are several pictures I took they start after I got about halfway through the egg shell. I had to slowly snip away half the shell and then wait for the blood to leave the shall and the umbilical cord to dry up and fall off but sooooo happy! Half peeled out half out again FINALLY free of the egg and his "umbilical cord" All dry now and partially clean lol Happy chicky poo UPDATE!!!!!! Little Chicky poo is in the brooder now with all the other peepers, hes doing FANTASTIC... So glad he is too!
