    Hello,
    I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago and somebody told me that the temp was either to high or if it's a forced air it probably took a break and then it's inside shrink wrapped itself to the chick.
    Also what do you mean they were almost fully developed?

    I think the humidity might have done it...
