    I helped this chick out with tweezers and there is a red sack hanging out of her. She also seems to not have absorbed the yolk but i cant tell what the brown liquid is that poured out of the shell. Her head was still attached to the shell by something but she go herself free and i tried to take a part of the shell off of her and it still seems to still be attached to her by a vein or something. I don't know what to do i helped her out too soon i think. We wrapped her in a wet paper towel in the incubator to keep her in place. Was that a good thing to do? Can someone please help! Any advice please and Id appreciate if you can tell me if this has ever happened to you before. Thank you so much for responding and God Bless.

    A wet paper towel maybe the best. I'd keep it moist and wait. Was it just a pip?

    I agree with geepy----just let her rest now, and hopefully she'll be o.k. It's so hard to know when to help, but best to wait for at least a few hours---it can take 24 hours for a chick to hatch after pipping.

    No I didnt look at the clock when it did pip but id guess it was around noon today or later. I have it wrapped in a slightly damp paper towel right now and it just laying there wrapped in it. I made a mistake taking it out this soon.

    I
    tie off the egg yolk hanging out and cut it off. It will just pull on out if you leave it and make the baby dehydrate. This way all can dry out and give the baby best possible way to survive. I give them drinks of sugar water approx 1 tsp sugar and pinch of salt to 30 ml of warm water to help give them strength until they can eat. I have lost many this way and have had many survive. I use white thread to do this.

    And i started helping it out with tweezers about 10 or 15 minutes ago. I was careful to only take away shell and not membrane but i didnt peel membrane off that looked dry.

    I agree just keep it moist, we use a spray bottle to mist sometimes and just see how she does

    Is that what this red sack is? the egg yolk? it looks more like a sack of blood hanging out of the abdomen.​

    It could have been too soon or some babies are born with their egg yolk sac not up inside right. It is sometimes hard to know right answer should I help or not.
