When those of you you who help chip away at the pipped egg. Talk about bleeding....what do you mean exactly? The blood is between the egg and the membrane? Cause our pipped egg has done nothing for 20 hours except sit under the hen with it's beak exposed. We did intervene, but are unsure of exactly what everyone means. We removed some shell on the large end around the pip, nothing bled...but you can tell there is blood in there? We moistened membrane and replaced under the hen, is this the best way or should we finish what we started now? The chick has not changed postion within the egg at all, beak still out of the inner membrane in one spot. The area with egg removed is the whole large end, but the membrane is still surrounding the chick, she wriggles her beak and peeps but doesn't pop through the membrane. Do you open the membrane enough to let the head out? This area on the membrane is not bleeding, and I have been moistening it with qtip and replacing under hen. Only her beak, nostrils are completely out of egg/membrane and all. Would a pic help?
