    Who was it that did it once before? If they e just pipped let them rest. Make sure they have air. Don't help yet because they may not be ready to hatch.

    Okay, so only one end is pipped?

    Sit on your hands and and read Sally's hatching 101. That pip might take 24 hours to get ready to hatch. If you help it, you have to be ready and prepared to kill it because that's a huge possibility.

    It's ok. Take a breath. We want two live chicks too! But we want them to be healthy, and we want you to understand that sometimes they don't hatch for a reason. :hugs
