    Is teh chick out and walking around with egg stuck to it? if so, you can moisten a Qtip and moisten the feather under/around the egg in an attempt to soften up the "glue" holding it to her.....


    dont pull on it...

    Don't pull it!!

    Take a drop of water and see if you can dampen the membrane. Keep your humidity up in the bator and leave it alone for a little bit and see if it will loosen on it own and the chick can finish hatching naturally. Don't get water around the beak or just a drop could drowned it.

    OH MY Godness. yes the the egg was stuck to it. I got it out because it was stuck around its neck. I wet it. and pulled lightly. It came off. My hands are shaking so much and I'm crying like a baby. BUT I did it. Thank you for your help.
