I forgot to update y'all on the Saran Wrap chick! Got home last night and unwrapped it. The cotton had held its moisture just perfect! The only place baby was dried was right around its beak where there was nothing moist.
Anyway, got all the shell off (baby was malpositioned but otherwise seemed normal).. It had absorbed all the blood from the veins BUT when the shell was off its umbulicus started bleeding. Not a ton but I knew it didn't take much. So, I put a little pressure on it for a minute and got it back to the bator. It was very weak.
Here's what I found this morning!
It's super bouncy and sassy so it should be good. It does have one foot a little messed up so I'll watch that- I'm thinking from how it was stuck in the egg..? Anyway, that's the story.
What a wonderful success story. It seems you did all the right things. 🙌 Yay!🐥🐥🐥
