    Catching up on all the posts. Wow, so many great photos! I have another batch due on Friday. First batch went well, 2nd batch all types of issues and one lone chick.......a Gerbil got into the hen house or something. All other chicks hatching........push, wobble, rest and repeat.......this last chick was literally off and running with her innards outwards.....seriously did not know what all it was but there's a photo on Sallys Hatching site that looks EXACTLY as she did.......Yolk!

    From Saturday till now the naval stalk has gone from huge to less than a 1/16 of an inch and this baby never sleeps unless its in my hand. Sorry for the photo, you can't see the stalk and the red has been totally dried out, but I believe this one is going to make it!! I've put others down when in bad shape but her personality and determination grabbed DH as I told him and am now thankful we gave her a chance :) she's still running all over 24/7 and more active than my week old babies!

    App 24 hours: This was taken the day after some of the larger broken yolk sac and whatever else organs were out there ...some came off, some she stepped on after I burrito wrapped her, she's so hyperactive!!!!

    This was taken the other day:[​IMG]

    This one yesterday, it's shrunk so much and she's a bit spoiled........:(all you can see is the outside here, but it's small enough to at least fall off now!)[​IMG]

    :(can't wait till she can be with other chicks, she thinks my hand is her momma and chirps 24/7 waiting on me to come back to the brooder):

    I don't believe so. Says French on the bottom of the glass. But if no one can tell the difference? [​IMG] I know I can't, I'm sure there a lot of folks out there that know their glass. It's pretty cute though.

    Wow, all I can suggest is putting Neo on it. Will help keep infection away. Not sure that will absorb..or fall of. If she is put in with other chicks, she will definitely be picked at..they will open that up right away. :( Sally..any suggestions here?

    I was just curious. If it says French, then it is not Fenton, but it still looks very nice! And it is super nice of you to donate!

    I'm keeping Neo on it a few times per day. The cord has shrunk to the point I really believe she will be just fine. It's been an intense several days. She's never laid down or acted ill or in pain.......all she wants is company and at this point.......she better make it....she'll be a little miracle:) Sparrow. Hope nothing sneaks up on me but we'll see...........

    Forgot to ad, I messaged Sally early on. Wisdom: She gave me a hug avatar when I asked if she thought she'd make it:)

    I just hate it when shipping and handling is as much as the merchandise! [​IMG]
