Subject: Helping a hatch and bleeding

Hi. I used to come here a lot a few years ago, around about the time Sinbad was here. I stopped hatching quails shortly after that as I had a huge disaster with my aviary and they all got loose, it was a nightmare and we sadly lost the lot.
I'm now hatching a few, just for the house, maybe to sell a few too.
I've had two healthy hatched chicks, I believe a silver and double blue face, and there was a third with just a beak exposed for about 12 hours.
I finally gave up and started to help him out, but the membrane started bleeding, so back in the incubator with him for another few hours before I tried again, I got a bit more off but it soon started bleeding again, so now he's back in, I've put the humidity up to 60% to try to stop him drying out, what should I do now? Keep getting him out every so often? Or is there a better way?
