    One of the chicks that hatched last night has dried goo and a small piece of shell stuck to it's back. The other chicks are starting to want to peck at it. When I remove them from the bator how should I get that off? Or do I even try?

    I've only had one chick that ever had shell or membrane stuck to it and when I went to remove them from the incubator it came right off...if yours doesn't come off try a Q-tip and warm water ...
