It's my first time hatching eggs under a broody hen! I'm wondering, should the mama be sitting on the new born to keep it warm? It just hatched a few hours ago...

Currently, the mama is sitting on the other egg and the baby is next to her. The chick is still wet and not standing up. Just peeping and occasionally stretching it's legs.

It's her first time with chicks...

Also, the chick has a red / bald spot on it's head. It doesn't appear to be bleeding - just raw looking. Is that normal? It's near it's ear.

Thanks!
