I had a chick hatch in my hand this morning!!
One egg hatched yesterday and I was checking to see if the other one had hatched. I stuck my hand in to feel the egg and felt the other shell capped over the remaining egg. I took it out of the nest and the new chick had already perforated the eggshell and was pushing his way into the world. I didnt want to put it back in the nestbowl for fear of getting him upside down and killing the chick. I made a cup of my hands and watched as he emerged from the egg. In a few minutes he was out!!
I pulled the hen off the nest and set the hatchling back in the nest with half of the shell. I stepped out of the pen and watched the hen remove the shell and settle back down on both of the chicks.
Probably one of the coolest things I have seen since I got back into birds.

blue sky single beat
in cadance performing now
earth beckons the winged
drawn breath is let quickly forth
orchestral movement follows

Thats awesome. I've actually done the same thing with a young homer a few years back. Its amazing to watch them push their little bodies out of the shell. I'm glad you didn't loose the little guy. Best of luck.
