Help Hatch Problems (Graphic Photo)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I posted this on the goose site and then thought this might be a better place.  This guy hatched by itself, two days later than the other goslings.  It looks like he isn’t totally absorbed and may have some of his insides hanging out... not sure what this is.  He is weak and feet are curled, so not walking mostly flopping.  I made sure the floor of the incubator was clean and put him back in.  I gave him two drops of Poly Vi Sol.  What are his chances?  Can I do anything else?  Do you think he will make it?  He may look a little swollen too. Thanks.  Please respond if you are familiar with this even if it doesn’t pertain to a gosling. I don’t want him to suffer.

Never mind.  Lost the little guy.  Nature is a little cruel sometime.  So sad.

: c  I'm sorry.   That's so sad!
Poor little thing.  Did any of the rest of your hatch have any issues?

I've had a similar issue with a duckling in my incubator--but it only lived minutes.

Bumping for insight.

Four out of 5 hatched.  The other four are doing fine.
