    One chick that I was hatching piped internaly but would not break the shell.

    After a day i did not want it to suficated so I broke a small hole in the air sack so it could breath.

    Another day has gone by and still nothing. and there is one maore problem, the chick has an under bite. [​IMG]

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    Sadly, inability to hatch can be one of natures ways of saying, "I tried, but this one is not strong enough to survive."

    I'm sorry you're having to go through this [​IMG]

    agreed, some are not meant to be

    if you poked a hole, it is drying out in the membrane. might as well help it out, now

    Well the chick hatched with my help, and it had major mental/phisical problems and had to be put down.
