Very urgent advice needed!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, my mom and I need some urgent help with a chick who is stuck in its egg, I went to my chicken with a total of 25 eggs and 14 already hatched, she laid her eggs in a horrible place and 3 babies were stepped on but we have moved them all since and no one has died since but we have a late hatcher who has piped but is stuck
in the egg. We did not intervene untill its outer membrane was drying out. We have followed steps on many articles and have been dampening it with warm cloths. Hours later he is not coming out. I need advice I'm aware he could be deformed and if he is we will cull him. I inserted a picture of him but we don't know what to do now. Keep in mind this is our first hatch. My mom and I are doing what we can and have read but we are not sure what to do next as it's already 9 pm and we are tired. I will gladly truck through the night for this little chick if I have to!! This was a natural birth not in an incubator.
Please give us lots of advice!!

Glad to hear it worked out well for the little one! No worries about the spelling errors, it happens to all of at some thyme (LOL).

Do you have a brooder for him, so he will stay warm?

Sadly not but my mom and I have been keeping him warm with a hot water bottle (on a towel of course) or holding him. I was doing that all night and only got to bed at 4am. He is alright though and looking healthy!

This is him now, but there is another egg.. same issue. How can I make an incubator? I live in South Africa and the shops aren't close. There are still 5 more eggs and the mom doesn't really care anymore. And for anyone who was wondering how the siblings look.. yes there are 3 turkens! This picture doesn't have all 11 chicks and number twelve with me.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :) Glad your chick is doing well.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
