    I'm sorry...can't help.

    Sometimes chicks are born with their organs hanging out...

    Keep the chick warm and hopefully they will adsorb what is hanging out or it will dry up and fall off in a few days. Don't let other chicks peck on it as that could pull out the rest of the internals. Sometimes it happens when they pop out a bit early or if heat in the bator was a bit high. Doesn't look bad at all though. Just let the chick rest and it should turn out fine if it doesn't have other developmental defects. Best of luck.

    okay...I am keeping it dry and so far only one other chick in with her......she is acting normal.....other chick to busy to pick at it because she is chasing him around..guess she thinks its her momma [​IMG]
    it is dry,not at all looking like her organs....just odd.....hopefully she will naturally discard whatever it is or it will be drawn back in ! thanks you two
