    I have some eggs in the incubator. One chick began peeping Friday afternoon. I noticed a hole late Friday, early Saturday morning. This morning he isn't making much noise and the hole is the same size. Should I help him?

    By now the chick has either finished or died. I'm sorry I did not see this sooner. What happened?

    Did this chick finish hatching?
