Ok, so my chick came out with a bit of yolk not absorbed...then it got bigger. It worried me because it thought it might be pulling it out, but then it ripped it. There was a lot of blood and yolk. I tied the ripped part off with string dipped in hydrogen peroxide. Then I wiped it down with hydrogen peroxide, not sure if thats ok. But he is sooo weak. I gave him some poly vi sol. He won't sit or lay down I think because it hurts. He sits back on his butt with his legs extended out...kinda funny looking but sad. I moved him to a bowl with a damp papertowel so he won't rip it further and he can rest his head on the rim. But he just doesn't look well. What do you guys think I should do? I should have moved him to a bowl right off the bat because it was exposed but it was small and didn't want to risk shrinkwrapping any late hatchers. Ughhh. And its my birthday too.

I have no idea how you can fix it.
Just want to wish you all the best for the little chick and for you on your B-Day.
