    Was excited to see a pip this morning on day 20. Went out to check a little while ago and momma hen was pecking at the hole and making it bloody. Chick is still alive and chirping so i brought it in the house and put it nder a heat lamp to keep it warm. I also wrapped it in a moist paper towel. What can i do to help it?
