Hey ,everyone !! This was my first time incubating and hatching chicks and I'm almost positive my chick hatched without the yolk fully absorbed, she was the only one . Its about the size of a pea. I isolated her at first our of the incubator and into the brooder once she was dry. Then she was crying because she was alone so I put the next chick to hatch after her in with her and they've been fine together and doesnt peck at the yolk ( that I've seen) she seems to be doing alright , shes drinking a bit and walking around and everything but mainly still just sleeping from being so exhausted from hatching. I didnt do anything to the yolk, left it be in hopes it would dry off. Is that what I'm supposed to do ? I'm reading conflicting things. I will attach a picture ! Any words of advice will be greatly appreciated ! The first picture is from when she was first hatched and then I will attach another photo of what it looks like now , 24 hours later.
