    There is a little bump sticking out but I couldn't get a good picture of it. The inside of the eggshell is bloody, too. Searching for bloody butt didn't help. What is this called?

    It is doomed, isn't it? [​IMG]

    Well, not necessarily doomed. How's it doing?

    I wouldnt worry too much. Keep that vent cleaned--maybe a dab of triple-anitbiotic ointment to keep it from getting crusty? It could just be some left-over rawness.
