I wish the picture was better, but I know the difficulties in getting a good photo. It sounds like the yolk sack has not been absorbed completely. Not much can be done. Once the hatch is complete and this chick still has an unabsorbed yolk sack keep the chick in a clean environment. Hopefully the sack will absorb and all will be well. This chick may not survive. Keep your incubator closed until the hatch is complete. Good luck.
