    he can but if you open the bator it could dry out. and then he would most definitly die

    Usually they will absorb the yolk with absolutely no problem at all.

    It can take a few hours, and the chick needs to do this on her own.

    Are there any other chicks in the incubator? If so, and if they are dry you may

    want to take them out, the last thing the chick needs is to be stepped on, and

    have the yolk busted. [​IMG] I'm sure she'll be fine! [​IMG] & don't worry to much!

    Keep us updated!

    I heard of people wrapping the yolk in a warm moist papertowel and putting it in a teapcup and back into the bator. Good luck!
