It first started breaking out on Tuesday evening so it is now the 3rd complete day. It has enlarged the whole somewhat but it still seems no where near getting out. The chirps are not as often or loud now. It seems it won't make it. I added more water and the humidity has been at around 70 since tuesday night. 
I guess I'll just wait and whatever happens happens then, tks

Tom-
It can take up to 2 days for them to hatch but they will be screwed up if its the maximum time. Overnight usually is the max that is needed for a normal chick . If you help at this point you may end up with a crippled chick, Its usually a humidity thing or the chick isnt right in the first place. Is the membrane hard? sometimes they breathe into the membrane and it dries. You can rip it off her and see if she can get out. Maybe think of it as a roo for this case;-)
it can take up to 23 days for them to hatch depending on conditions...but make sure your humidity is high and make sure that the membrane isn't hardened onto the chick. you can put the egg on a damp paper towel in the hatcher to increase humidity. Chicks need at least 12 hours to absorb the yolk. if you decide to help and you tear back the egg shell a little and see any blood, stop and put the egg back; it means its not ready and hasn't absorbed all of the yolk.
If youre going to help it, I would do it now. You may end up with a bent chick. Just do it quick and put it back. help as little as possible because the struggle is part of the health of the chick. Also if you lose it, chances are that something was wrong in the first place. I am someone that helps, but I often find that was a huge mistake;-)
Its really hard to know what to do.
Ive got 4 quails (which was just an experiment from the 3 quails I keep for eggs, because they are terrible little creatures and one is already attacking the littler ones) and tomorrow or the next day I will hopefully have cochins and araucanas...fingers crossed. Then a few days after maybe a few more turkeys.
Let me know how it works out.

Melina, I have barred rocks and buff orp hens. One of the orps turned out to be a roo. My neighbors said they didn't mind and since I wasn't finding any place to get rid of him that was acceptable to me  ( I can butcher him myself if I want to so I'm not giving him to someone else who is just going to eat him anyway)... I decided to risk the 20 to life maximum security prison sentence for having a rooster here and try to hatch some eggs while he is around.

I do have a question. How long does it take for them to break out of the egg once they start? This one has not made much progress and is still really not much further along then it was yesterday.  Today at 2pm will be exactly 21 days to the hour?

I am hoping to have hatching eggs this spring. I don't sell actual chickens. I do have turkey poults in spring and limited guineas...also duck hatching eggs.

Melina,
Will you be selling the araucans and/or the standard frizzle Cochins or are they just for your flock?

No problem.Im usually down in the city quite a bit but have been sick and am waiting for the cold to break. If you have any problem I'm coming in to see a show on Sat in Hell's kitchen. I always try to keep various vaccines in my fridge.
I run the southern CT/Westchester poultry meetup at www.meetup.com/chickens1
keep in touch in case you get stuck in the future. Im expecting a hatch in a day or two and then in a few more days, a couple of turkeys (lost a few to a fox that has been taking much stock this winter) and some quail.....I am breeding for the first time so I am hoping for Araucanas and standard frizzle cochins from my own stock! We'll see what comes out! What are you hatching?

Hi Melina. I placed the order this morning which I had to do anyway. They were pretty certain it would make it next-day with np. Fortunately "she" (wishful thinking)  is taking her time and may not even make it out until tomorrow.  It caught me by surprise and wasn't really even expecting any to hatch. Thanks, I do appreciate the offer.

Tractor supply in CT may have it. You may have to travel. I may have some but Im also in CT, around an hour out of NYC. I have to check the date.

Hello everyone. Does anyone in the Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Nassau or Suffolk County areas know where I can get poultry vaccines? I have a chick just started to hatch 3 days before I expected and would like to get a Marek's vaccine on hand before the end of the day tomorrow. It's going to be too late to ship it now, especially with the weather delays. 
Thanks !
Tom
