Greetings from Costa Rica! I've got a female who's eggs are currently in the hatching stage. We have no access to and do not use incubators or any other interventions, although she is, of course, in a nest inside of an enclosed area. For the last few days, her poults have been able to get their lil beaks out of the shell and membrane and in most cases get about 30-40% of the shells off, but keep dying prior to fully breaking open the membrane and exiting the egg. We have only a few eggs left and are wondering what we can do to help the mama?? Everything I've read indicates to NOT break the membrane...It sucks hearing peeps and cheeps and then later finding the poor critters deceased in the shell.
