    Hello.. my hen layed 3 eggs in her nest.. two of the chicks have been hatched for about 3 days now... the last egg hatched and the sack is still fairly large .. there is no bleeding. and the chick is peeping and moving a bit . I have him on a heating pad because I do not have an incubator .. I do not know if I just keep it warm and wait.. or do I need to keep the Sack wet.. does it need to dry up.. it still looks preaty full... I know he might not live but I have to try..

    Pics please, and chicks are suppose to absorb they yolk sack wile in the egg thats why when they hatch they don't have to drink or eat for a few hours. I think that he might have not bin able to absorb the sack wile in the egg. Maybe he was born to early or just had some problems.
