ive just hatched my first ever chicken egg. It came out by itself at 3pm today, now, 5 hours on it seems to be panting and shaking at the same time at the edge of the incubator. Is it too hot or too cold? The temp is 35.8 and the humidity 60. The temp randomly went up to 38 a couple of hours ago, but I turned it down. Very scared particularly for my little girl it won't survive the night.
It does occasionally jump up and flap around as though it is trying to get out.
Thanks in advance

This is the temp it hatched at, so I need to turn it up higher than the hatching temp now? Thank you for your advice

Yes, hatching temp for chicks is 37 degrees celsius, the chick is most likely shaking because it's cold. Turn the temperature up and keep a close eye

I've read the brooder should be 30c this seems so much cooler for it to go into tomorrow, any advice on this?
