    The ruptured yolk sac is still alive?? That doesn't sound right? Once that yolk sac breaks it's usually over and very quickly. Can you send a pic? If he's climbing out of the cup, I would say it's not his yolk sac that's out, it's a swelled up navel. That will shrink down, I would lay him down on the bottom of the bator but a pic would be GREAT
