Okay, so earlier I posted about breaking an egg (only the shell around the air cell) because I wasn't sure that it was developing. It was very alive, so I wrapped the top in plastic wrap and put it back in the bator! THE CHICK IS NOW HATCHING!! It's beak is through the membrane in the aircell. It has had it's shell open for around a week. however, I wasn't expecting any hatches for another week (guess this one had been under the broody longer than I thought)...The hum's around 30% (yeah, it's really low, I'm working up to 40, but our weather has been so wild) and...sniff...I had to open the bator to collect data on the other eggs. The membrane is clear and thin, but seems to be very close to the chick. I'm worried it may have shrink-wrapped? If it has, what should I do? If this chook lives, it's name is Miracle. It's a Cuckoo silkie crossed with a mottled cochin, a black frizzled cochin, or possibly a standard dark brahma. This is a special chickie! So cute! Coloration is described later on...pics this weekend!
