I had a little hen sitting on 6 eggs so when they started hatching I moved her and the nest to my nursery cage. 4 hatched fine 1 egg was rotten and the last chick was taking FOREVER.. I was concerned and got on here to see what was going on... Yes the membrane was all dry and sticky, poor thing couldn't move anymore. I did the warm wet rag picking slowly at the shell. Would rest him/her in the bator do it again and one more time... Next thing I hear is the chicky peeping like crazy moving around all over. I wrapped it in a warm dry cloth and got it out to mama right away. It is acting like the 4 day olds today!!!! It made me SO happy!!!
