Don't try and pull the shell off dry- you might take the skin off.

To remove the shell, use a warm, wet paper towel to get the shell to loosen up.

Make sure the chick stays warm while you do this, the warm purple pad plus being held in warm hands should help.

To keep the purple pad from getting very wet, put a small clean towel underneath the chick.

It might take a few warm wet paper towels to get the shell to come all the way off, just do it gently and use a clean warm wet paper towel each time.

Once the shell is off, wipe the chick with a clean wet warm paper towel, then ...

Use a hair dryer on the lowest setting to help it dry off. Or, gently rub with a paper towel to help it dry so it can be warm.

Be very very careful with the belly. When chicks first hatch the belly is extremely delicate, so if you can do all of this WITHOUT picking the chick up (except to put the towel underneath), it's better for the chick.

Sitting on the purple pad, or in someone's hands is OK, just don't keep picking it up and setting it down.

Yes, the Brinsea brooder is better. It sits on the ground (no hanging it up) and is much safer than a heat lamp.

with the warm wet paper towel, I try picking the shell of genelty and slowly

or pat it?
Yes, let the warm wet paper towel sit over the chick where the shell is stuck, then see if any will come off, just keep going with the wet paper towels until the shell comes off without hurting the chick.

Keep the wet paper towels warm so you don't make the chick cold.
