    The egg is open chick breathing but membrane at 8 hours is still very vascular and she isn't trying to get out

    Welcome to BYC. What day of incubation is the egg at? I would cover it with a moist paper towel to cut down on excessive drying of the membranes.

    Has the yolk been completely absorbed?

    accidents happen. Sounds like the chick will be okay. As others hatch you may want to keep it away from them so they don't detach it from the yolk sac. The chick is still absorbing it.
