i just thought i'd pass this along.when my last chick(s) hatched it was so dry because i had humidity problems that i had to help it out of its shell. it literally stuck to the wire in the incubator and could not move. NOW, i am not going to tell you this was the smart thing to do, but i decided to rinse the chick under warm water. ok, my husband freaked, but , i dried it gently with a blow dryer, put the chick back , and no harm done. i just wanted the other people who feel like when this problem arises that this was tried and atleast worked for me. again i am not going to tell you to do it, just that i tried it.
