I have literally just hatched a chick 20 mins ago panic excitemant and worry has set in..what now?
Welcome to BYC.
Are you using an incubator or a broody hen?
If you are using an incubator, leave the new chick inside it until it is fully dry. It's important not to open the incubator frequently during hatch so as not to harm the other eggs; the most you should open it is once or twice in a twenty four hour period during lockdown and only when strictly necessary. It's best to wait until several have hatched and remove them in groups rather than singly.
If you are using a broody hen, let her alone, she knows what she is doing.
