    TX baby!
    This is the second baby in this hatch that has had an exposed yolk sac. The first one was culled because his intestines were hanging out (hatched Mon.). This second baby it appears to be just the yolk sac.

    This eggs were incubated under two different silkies (one a great broodie/momma the other a very young pullet). I dont have acess to a incubator but right now he is wrapped snugglie in a warm/damp towel under a red heat lamp.

    Is there anything I can do to improve his odds of surival or ......
