mumma hen hatched four chicks, the last one three days ago. I left the other two eggs there just incase. This morning I found that one off the eggs had been broken..like she had tried to help the chicken. The membrane was like leather and the chicken couldn't get out. I very carefully cut open the membrane and allowed the chicken to take it's own time. It is at this moment sitting in my hand sleeping. I think it has bonded with me. My question is this.... is it too young to be put back with mum, as the others are so far ahead of it, and it also seems to have hurt it's beak, as it has a white tip like when you fold your finger nail back. Any information would be a great help as I have never tried to raise a chicken before.
