It is really hard to keep them alive if they break the yolk sack but it most likely had issues before hatching. As sad as it is, sometimes it is a relief to lose them sooner rather than later if they are not going to make it. When there is a visible problem at hatching there are likely unseen problems as well. I have a hard time culling but I have learned that sometimes it is best to walk away and leave it to fate rather than spending too much time and mental energy on a problem I can't solve.

I couldn't cull her, so I let nature take its course. I usually don't have a problem with culling when it came time with my other birds in the past.
