    Gross as it sounds, you could put it in your bra...stranger things have been done around here... [​IMG]

    Maybe wrap it in a moist paper towel and put it on a heating pad on low? That's what I would do as an option...believe it or not, I've found that a temp can be slightly too low at hatching...I keep my hatcher temp around 95 on hatch day because I have had tragedies where I had a temp spike at hatch and all my fully developed chicks died...

    Good luck! [​IMG]
