I had to assist a chick getting out of it's shell. It was VERY dry. So when the next one pipped, I waited a good 12+ hours and nothing happened. I opened the air cell a little further, it too was drying up!... I covered it with a wet rag and after 4 hours (while I was in NJ) it crawled out on it's own... My emergency is... It's not fluffing. It's drying. Crusty and hard. It's still attached by a small clear strand to the eggs membrane. I didn't want to touch it, so I soaked it's feathers with warm water and stuck it in a box inside my brooder directly under the lamp, so it stays warm. Here's a picture... What should I do? I've never had this happen to me before and I don't want the poor thing to die. It's chirping up a storm and trying to stand on it's own... I'm just concerned about the crusting issue and it's umbilical (?) cord?
