    The chicken that is on the eggs has decided to start pecking and pulling the wing of the chick who has pecked a hole in the egg to get out. Why?

    Hello,

    This happened to me aswell but with ducklings, I think it was encouragin it because as soon as it started the chick in the eggs went crazy and zipped in 20 mins!
