I was getting rid of the "dud" eggs from a hatch today and to my surprise found this chick in one of the eggs. (All others were undeveloped) I left the bottom half of the shell with him and stuck him back under mom but the 2 times I've gone out to check on him, he is buried under her in the shavings. I'm afraid he will suffocate since he isn't walking yet. What is going on here? Can I save this little one?
Note: This chick is from a mama incubated egg - I do not have an incubator up and running so that may change your advice!
