    Sit back and wait for the others to hatch. Got the light on heating up your brooder?

    Have any other eggs in the bator? This one could be the early bird. Otherwise, if it's all fluffed up, take it out and put it in a brooder with water and chick starter and keep it at least 95 degrees for a day or two then decrease to 90, next week 85, next week 80..

    ... I just wish we could get down to 80 degrees here.

    Calm down.

    It will dry in an hour or so.

    It will not eat or drink for a day because they still have to absorb the yolk.

    It's midnight. Leave him there, and go to bed. he won't need to eat for a day, and he'll stay warm. He's fine, and his chirping may encourage the other to hatch if ther egg's viable.

    Since you are only hatching a couple of eggs then I wouldn't worry about the chick and just let it dry out. If I have a lot of eggs I do take the chicks out after they have hatched and put them in my brooder. There are some chicks I hatched out for some friends.
