    Is there anything I can for him? He was doing great last night and he is slowing down this morning and I'm sure he'll obviously die soon, but is there anything I can do or is it too late? I think I've read on a post before that you can push them back in, but not sure if it's too late for that, and I'm honostly alittle scared to do that...

    Yea.... that happens. I'd be surprised if it was "intestine", most probably the yolk remnants and blood that they absorb the last several hours in the shell. I've had them survive without issue, just give em a fighting chance to live, water it and feed it, that's about all you can do.
