    If the membrane is sticking to it, it's not going to be able to hatch by itself, or not without difficulty. Take a wet Q-tip and carefully dampen the membrane, also try and get under the membrane and wipe the chick's down to loosen the membrane. Keep wiping the membrane every now and then to keep it damp until the chick is ready to hatch.
