So I have eggs that should be hatching in about 5 days. My mom used to get the incubator from the educational thing and hatch some out once a year wih her class, but other than that, I haven't done it myself. She says under no circumstance should you help a chick out of its shell, because if its too weak to hatch, it will be too weak to survive. I have also heard other people say sometimes the chick is too big to move around very well inside and peck itself out, and there's always the chance of twins which is even harder. So my question is, do you help it if it looks like its making progress, there is a very small amount of blood if any, or you hear loud peeping from inside? I'm so nervous about this and it's starting to worry me as to what to do. I want to help a chick that is strong enough, but I don't want to A. hurt the chick getting it out or B. go against mother nature and loose the chick to the other chicks, disease, etc. Also, if you say yes, please tell how such as what to use, how much shell to remove, etc. THANKS SO MUCH!!!! addition: I have ten 2 week old chicks right now..
