    Chick is pipping and fluid leaked out, with a few vessels. What's this? Last hatching did not have it.

    How is the hatch going?

    I am not sure about the fluid - maybe too much humidity and not enough evaporated out of the egg? [​IMG]

    Just earlier today I had one pip and zip, and there was "runny stuff" coming out of the bottom of the zip. The poor thing died before it hatched. I think it drown. Which upset me because I could have helped it but I didn't. [​IMG] That was the only one like that though....

    Good luck, I hope yours is just a fluke!

    Sounds like you had too much humidity during your incubation. Sorry. Hope the rest come out better for you [​IMG]
