    put it and its shell in a coffee cup Try to keep its butt in the shell and keep it in the incubator with the humidity up.

    Keep the chick upright so its sitting in the shell, you can use a cup to do this also keep the humidity up like you would around lockdown.

    Yes, the idea is to limit the chicks movement so it dont separate from the shell . You want to keep it attached as long as possible. Til that yolk sac absorbs

    you don't take the shell off keep the chick connected to the shell,then with the shell still attached make the chick sit in its shell,but put it in a cup so it stays with that way
