What went wrong? ? ?
I posted yesterday about a bloody pip hole under my broody....

I left it alone and this morning I found this!

The hen was freaking out and so I tried to see if there was a chick in it but it was a hot mess. So I just got rid of it. Once it was gone she went right back to sitting pretty. She is in lockdown.

First Time Chicken Chick, learning as I go. So far, So good

A nice mix of about 25 ladies and 1 rotten Lavender Rooster

It looks to me like it was malepositioned, pipped into a membrane and bled. The yolk hadn't been absorbed and when the egg somehow got busted the yolk spilled out. I will say though, that yolk does not look healthy.
