my broody hen has a chick thats supposed to be hatching today, an hear the chick peeping alot in the egg bit it hasnt broken the egg! i live in arizona and im sure the humidity under the hen is very low. what do i do? do i open it manually? what if it dies?
If you are afraid that it isn't humid enough, you could try spritzing the underside of the hen with water. But it is normal for the chick to peep inside the shell before it breaks it. It would probably be best to leave them alone for a few more hours or another day, I wouldn't worry yet, if I were you. Good luck!
