    Here's a video I found.

    How did it get broken?

    I'm not sure...I brought her inside away from the hen that hatched her because she wasn't being taken care of...maybe they trampled her and broke it, but I only just noticed it today, so I really have no idea.
    Unfortunately, the chick didn't make it...she had troubles since she hatched and I wasn't sure if she would make it.
    Thanks so much for you help anyway, this should help in the future should this happen again!
