    If the membrane is sticking over the nostrils I'd push it off.

    Thanks, The chick is doing great! I have 10 babies now! There are 5 in the incubator that are on day 23 and 24. I don't have high hopes for those eggs. A 75% hatch rate works for me. I thing were going to make an incubator for next time that is more accurate.
