In my last hatch, I had a chick pip the wrong side of the egg. He was stuck in the egg for around seven hours. i picked away at the shell, not breaking the membrane, until there was space enough for him to escape. he survived and was smaller than the others, a problem with his foot, but otherwise he was perfectly normal. Later, I had to help a white button chick out of its egg, the membrane bled, but if you sanitize the area and the chick with warm water and anticeptic ointment, thwe chick should be fine. And, as ive learned from experience, if you raise the humidity around 65-70%, you get a better rate of hatching!
