    Hi. I have a chick that is piping out towards the point end of the egg. I am worried that it will suffocate. The egg is rolling around, so it is alive. Should I help it out?

    I had an egg like that too. It hatched out fine for me. I just left it be and it was able to get itself out.

    Ok, that is what I was thinking.
