Wait about a week before you "interfere". Of course, you could get lucky and get a glimpse and/or a good photo of the baby if you catch the parent off the nest!

Terry
thanks for the help
i have another question. the nest has loose twigs and stuff in it. that won't hurt the baby right?. should i start putting paper towels in after the week is up?

Congratulations, Hillary!! :D How exciting. Yes, you can put paper towels in with it and change them when needed after a week or so. It'll go quickly. :)

Oh I'm so sorry to hear of your loss it is just the pit's when it happens, we had one this year that fell/was pushed from the nest pan and I found it behind the pan, I couldn't speak let alone touch it, had to guide my man with vague hand signals to deal with the situation (because it just had to be from my favourite hen, who also had one egg trampled this year, she has had three rounds of young and each time only one has survived with the last time an unfilled egg), please don't give up it sounds like there was nothing that could have been done, it was down to fate for whatever reason.
