Just went out to check on my broody hen sitting on 4 eggs. Stupid me picked up an egg & my hen turned to peck me and got the egg instead. She cracked it and the 20 day old egg has a live chick inside. I returned it to mom but now i worry she'll smother it. Advice please, I'm really worried and this is my first hatch.

How bad is it crack and where is it cracked at. Since it's day 20, this may unfortunately just be a wait and see situation. I hope everything works out for you.
