My broody hen has gotten up off her chicks that are hatching right now and it seems that some of them are getting vacuum packed inside. I say this because the membrane is around the chick and I could crack the egg off with out the membrane being touched. I don't want to touch her chicks though because she might come back. Should I just moisten the eggs that have piped or started to hatch?? I see beaks already but I think some are stuck. Water on membrane maybe??
