Didn't have enough strength to get out of shell and membrane do I helped a little towards the end, once the veins weren't red. When they finality got out, they had what looked like abdomen tears. I believe it was where the yolk was absorbing. There was no yoke left, but they looked like cuts. Used betadine, and a little non stick wrap on one chick. They are both arriving around slowly and stiffly. I am praying they will be ok.
