I decided to hatch out the eggs my hen deserted using the electric skillet method. Within 10 minutes one little chick pecked a hole in its egg and eventually got out the egg over a five hour period with help. I knew I shouldn't help, but I was afraid it would die if I left it overnight - the skillet method is not too good for regulating temperature! I was very careful not to break any blood vessels. (That was about 24 hours ago. The chick was so weak I thought it would die, but it didn't and I slept sitting up with it in my hands last night and it made it through the night. It wants to sleep all the time, but rallies when disturbed. Every so often I put some drops of water on it's beak and it drinks. I have also ground chick meal very fine and added it to the water. The chick can stand very briefly or move itself away from the heat lamp when it wants, but basically - it sleeps. How am I doing? Is there anything more I can do? How often should I give it water - and how much should I try to feed it and how is that done? It doesn't do either on it's own, but does peck around a little at it's feathers or "nothing" on the paper towel.
