Has anyone ever experienced a chick hatching with it's insides out? Last year we hatched several with no problems. This year we decided to hatch some eggs from our BO's that we ordered from a hatchery, The one that hatched earlier today came out in this sad condition. Any thoughts?

I've never hatched, but I've read a number of posts where the egg yolk is not completely absorbed at hatch and it takes several hours...the chick should be fine.

If the insides are outside it sounds like just one of those genetic hiccups that happen. My cat once gave birth to a kitten with the insides out

- all the other kittens were fine...

Hope the rest of your hatch is without this!
