I had a chick pipped at wrong end, early and shrink wrapped. I looked at all threads to get advice. This is my 3rd hatch. After 18 hours chick was getting weaker. I decided to help. Membrane very dry and tough. She’ll stuck on. She had made a large hole to breathe on her own. I started soaking shell with wet warm paper towels. After a couple of hours, I was crying and chick pitiful. I put her in bowl of warm water holding her in my hand. After about 10 min. The shell all came off and membrane. She still couldn’t get out of the second membrane. So..back in the bowl. That took about 5 min. To get her all the way out. We finished about 1:30 in the morning. This morning, she looks like a healthy hatched chick. I hope this might help someone else. I don’t think she would have lived.
