    With some reservations, I removed the chick from its egg...Its wing was stuck to its head and its neck was glued to the membrane making it impossible for the chick to move...I got it out and used a warm mist to free the glued areas...There was a small it of yolk but I think that was afterbirth...It dislodged easily and there's no bleeding, although the umbilical cord id still protruding and is dark red...Chick seems OK...Can't stand yet, but is definitely flipping itself around the incubator...

    Any ideas on what I should do next...I've grown quite fond of this little Lemon Orpington and I don't want to lose it...
