Yes I couldn't resist I picked up the egg to candle it not knowing exactly when it should be hatching and it cracked I think it must have cracked through inside and it was very fragile. I didn't really expect the chick to make it but he is thriving very well! Being as he was in a cracked egg I brought him inside under the heat lamp so he didn't get hurt from being stepped on and we have another hen that likes to climb in there and lay her eggs. This is day #3 since he hatched with help and he is moving around being very vocal eating and pooping but when I try to put him with his mom she gets really nervous because he is hyper as can be and he starts pecking her and pecking her waddle she doesn't like this and seemed to try and peck at him once so I removed him. What do I do? Is it normal for a chick to attack the hen like this? I finally got him to quiet down by putting a few stuffed ducks in his cage lol!
