    We are trying to hatch eggs but the first couple of chicks that have come out have had there insides coming out of where the umbilical cord is attached. We researched it and its from to much moisture in the incubater, but we couldnt find a cure for it. its so sad because they are getting skinnier and skinnier because all of their insides are now on the outside [​IMG] please help!!!!!

    They could have also hatched to early. Did you help them out of the eggs or did they hatch themselves? By now it would be too late to help them. If their intestines have already fallen out then there is no way to put them back in. I'm sorry for this, especially since you are a beginner [​IMG]

    Please post a pic, it's hard to know if it's intestines or just a bit of unabsorbed yolk.

    You aren't trying to help them out of shells right? If they made it out of the shells on their own, you may be seeing a cord and the waste material dangling. If Anything leaking was yellow, that may have been the yolk sac. Pictures would help.
