    This has happened to me a couple times once with a duck.
    -is the yoke still wet
    - has the chick absorb any of the yoke
    - has he got fluffy yet
    There really is not much you can do at this point there really is not that much you can do he might absorb it and he might not, if he/she does not than her chance of survival go down considerably but she still has a chance l have seen chicks that don't absorb the yoke and still live.

    I would say she still has a good chance of absorbing the yoke it looks pretty wet still
