It's been a BAD day here...this poor babies been through the ringer...stepped on by another chicken (which started everything..) as it was hatching which torn the membrane, then hatched early with just a little bit of unabsorbed yolk--went to check on it a little later (really thought it was going to be dead when i went back) but it was cheeping and yolk was almost absorbed!?
THEN the bad.....DEFinetely learned my lesson and should have taken the baby to ICU b/c momma pecked at its buttand that's where the "trauma" comes in...it fell back out and even worse and now it a gob of ? at its whereever the yolk goes.
hub and i talked about culling (never had to before), still might--but its eating and drinking and cheeping and poo'd...acts like it is full of life...i just feel so bad of the inevitable!!!? The unabsorbed just hasn't gone n and its just stringing alongHow LONG can this go on...I really thought it would pass in its sleep...or hoped...as peacefully as possible...poor sweet baby...I just dont get it. Thought it would just not be strong enough or loose its strength fast??? WHAT DO I DO!!!!
