    I would help it. I would gently pull the shell back at the point they cracked it at.

    Serama should take 19 days to hatch. Most eggs of any chicken will pip externally 12-24hours before they zip and hatch. I would not worry about it much unless you are beyond the 19day mark.

    If you do decide to help it, stop if you see bleeding.
