ok so I had a baby hatch this morning its been atleast 2 hrs since its been out of the shell it still has some of the inner part of the shell attached to its abdomen or what ever it is near its rectum & its got what looks like what might be some yolk. its still laying on its side hasn't tried getting up really shes peeping a little bit & moving her legs around. but my concern is the stuff still stuck to it 7 the fact that its not up moving around yet. should I try to cut that off I really want this chick to live. Can anyone please help me asap if its possible for anyone to call my number at 4804698671 id like to get help with this asap call or text would be easier than trying to figure out how to find responses on here. Thanks & God Bless

I would try and peel the excess egg off very gently. If it doesn't peel off right away, maybe try and dampen it with some lukewarm water to soften the yolk. After you get it off, put her back in the incubator to dry. Sometimes even if a small piece of eggshell is stuck on a chick, they wont be able to get up even though it doesn't seem like it is restraining them. I really hope this helps and hope she's okay!!!!!
