    I had a chick hatch earlier than expected and wasn't paying attention too well to know it was lock down time. I think humidity was to low. It is fully hatched but sticky and drying out. It was actually stuck to another egg that hadn't hatched yet. Is there anything I can/do for it? I did use warm water and moved the other egg away. And increased humidity this morning as soon as I saw it had externally pipped.
