he pipped and didnt do anything for 36 hours, so i decided he would probably die in the shell if i left him, so i decided to help. after much tears, and shaking and an hour later, i had a very tired little chickie out of the shell. i thought i killed him because he bled just a little, but this morning he was fluffed up and running around like a champ. i think he was too big for his shell, once i freed a little room for his feet he kicked out in my hand. so for my first hatch, that makes 100% i guess, and i am proud of myself for helping him out!
