This pictures shows what's left of the yolk attached to the intestines, which are outside the abdominal cavity. So sorry. hugs.gif

I had three hatch this weekend with the yolk not fully absorbed. One looked like it hadn't absorbed much of the yolk. It lived about 24 hours. Another had about the same amount of yolk out as your photo, that one lived a couple days. After the yolk dried up I cut it off, and it looked like the chick would be fine, but I guess it was just too weak. A third had a tiny bit of yolk sticking out, and it is doing fine.

Here is a close up:

 

Blue = intestines

Pink =  where the yolk attaches to the intestines

White = what's left of the yolk.
