    I have a silkie chick trying to hatch but I think it is stuck because my humidity is really low. What should I do???? [​IMG]

    mist it with warm water, or drip a drop or two of water on the membrane near the pip, making SURE not to drip it on the baby's beak/nostrils. increase humidity in the incubator by adding a wet sponge or paper towel

    eta: you should post this in emergencies/diseases section too; some of the more experienced hatchers and chicken owners will be more likely to see it and respond. Good luck with your baby!
