Can Premmie Chicks Survive?

One of my students wondered if a chick or other bird might be able to live if it hatched early for some reason (for example, if the shell broke or someone purposefully took it out early). When would the chick be viable if at all? We would appreciate finding out about this if possible. Thanks!
