    I was removing my broody hen and this egg fell and now has a hole in it. The chick is alive and moving, both membranes are broken and the chick is breathing. Do i take it out of the shell or leave it. One egg that was with it hatched 2 days ago and im not sure what day it is. I have 3 other viable eggs that have not hatched either
