    Today is day 17, and there was NO pip this morning! [​IMG] The little sqeaker had been kicking so hard at the egg, the egg started to roll round! [​IMG] I was worried it would run out of oxygen, so I used a dull needle to chip off the shell 1/2 way around the middle of the egg! [​IMG] There was a little blood, but I knew that would happen. I know I must have pipped in the wrong place though, because the sqeaker started poking at the other side!!! [​IMG] I know I probably should NOT have interfered, but the sqeaker will be worth $500 because of its champion bloodlines if it survives. [​IMG]


    P.s PLEASE HELP!!! [​IMG]

    I did not stab it with a needle!!! I carefully chipped the shell off with the dull end!!! [​IMG] The only reason it bled is because it had not yet cut the blood circulation out of the membrane!!! [​IMG]


    P.s jvls 1942, The dead ones are worth TONS,a grand total of $0.00 [​IMG]
