First time incubator here. This is day 19 for my quail, I had four hatch yesterday (out of 18... yikes :/). I have a chick who externally pipped at least 24 hours ago. I can still see it breathing. But I’m worried it isn’t going to make it out of the shell. The humidity dropped to around 25% last night and is now up to 50%. I have a few other pipped eggs that aren’t hatching but I can’t literally see the bird so I probably won’t mess with it... but I feel compelled to help this little guy out. Any thoughts or advice appreciated!!

if it looks like it’s stuck you can help but if you see blood stop
