    Last night we hatched our first chick. It took just over an hour after it started to unzip.

    While that baby was hatching, another egg pipped. Although it was a bit slower, over the course of about 4 hours it had managed to create a hole of about 1/4". The hole was facing up.
    When i went to bed at 1am, the hole was still about 1/4" and every 5 mins or so, you would see the chick push its beak up through.

    This morning (now 9:00am) the egg apparently made progress but I'm guessing it was rolled over by the other baby chick thats been running around.
    I have yet to see the egg move in the past 45 minutes.

    Here is another better picture. I believe its still alive and you can see the beak but its not turning and unzipping like the other chick did.

    Could it be stuck?
