    There's some yellow stuff hanging from the back of it.parts of it is flesh colored. It's moving around alot, peeping, it didn't hatch early and I didn't help it hatch.
    Will this stuff detatch itself or do I need to intervene? It just hatched. Ty[​IMG]

    After lots more movement, I now see one tiny cord connecting the duck to the yellow mass. Does that help?

    It is just the junk from the inside of the egg, I've seen them drag around part of the shell . It will dry up and that little cord with fall off . Peeps a lot because it is looking for mom
