    had a game hen start hatching eggs today.. i went to check on them and it seems that one chick had trouble getting out. so i help it get out... i pulled some of the egg shell off and broke the sack.. then instead of putting it back in with its mother i put it in my brooder box which is already warm in it cause i just put my other chicks out in the coop... i got it on a newpaper directly under the light.... is it going to be ok???

    I think it will be fine. Put it on some paper towels, newspaper is too slippery! Good luck![​IMG]

    It's probably really tired from the extra struggle to hatch. Even without extra difficulties they are tired and rest a lot after hatching, at least mine do. Some are a little more energetic, but maybe you have a little pullet there. [​IMG] Give her time to rest up and I'm sure all will be well.
    Good luck!
