    Don't know, can you gently crumble some of the shell way and let the rest fall off on its own?

    I'd use some warm water to wet the membrane that's stuck and loosen it, gently peel it off, and then get the chick back under some heat (since you'll probably end up getting it pretty wet). It shouldn't be anything life-threatening. [​IMG]

    Great idea, a nice warm bath and drying and pop him back under his nice warm lamp!
