I am sorry to hear the chick died, it is very sad to us all. The information I gave you was for a fully developed chick-which has been used successfully, and when I saw the picture that was not the case.

RIP sweet little Peabody.

Wish I'd looked into this much earlier, been too busy. I've seen them knock a few outward dents as much as a couple of days before even starting to pip out. Usually, they haven't absorbed the yolk into their abdomen (the bird equivalent of the umbilical cord) by then. It's a mistake to intervene before that point. They almost never need the help. I did something like that same thing once when it'd been 24 hours or so since I'd seen that first pip.
