Yup I remember when one of my chick hatched, she was still attached to half of the egg and mamma hen pecked the egg away from the chick. My mouth felt open but the chick was perfectly fine.I think my broody hens actually assist the chick hatch sometimes. I doubt you'll have to do anything. I've seen them cluck and peck at shell to get the chick moving inside.
