This egg was one of four eggs under my third broody. The first three hatched early in the morning on Day 20. She left the nest early in the morning on Day 21. I got the egg and candled it and saw there was an internal pip. Still not thinking it was alive, I opened it and peeled it back over the air cell (probably a little too much.) The chick was and is still very much alive and in the incubator. I put coconut oil on the inner membrane yesterday because the blood veins were still full. It has been like this for 24+ hours now.
My questions are:
- Does it look as though the blood has receded enough, and
- would the yolk already be absorbed?
Any thoughts? Please and thank you to all the egg experts!
ETA: in the morning. The way I had it written made it sound like the Chicks hatched early and the broody left the nest early, which could be the case (a little bit) I guess, but not what I was meaning exactly.
