So did mine and didn't need to be assisted either, which shocked me.

If it is yolk, I'd put a damp paper towel in the bottom of a mug and place the chick in it and either put it back in the bator or under a brooder light. The mug will confine it in hopes that it won't rupture the yolk sac and give it time to absorb. If it ruptures, the chick's probability of survival drops significavtly.

Really? The couple I talked to last year loved theirs but they had another piece, I want to say like a Y inside. I haven't looked into the plans yet, though I have a couple pinned on Pintrest
