    one of my turkeys hatched 2 days premature.the egg sac was still attached and from her moving around it looks like it pulled her intenstines out of her.im sure theres nothing i can do but watch her die but i was hoping there might be something.
    thanks for any advice.

    I had a chick hatch early once with its yolk sac still outside. It didn't live more than an hour or so. I imagine your poult will pass away in short order. It's probably not worth the trauma of putting it out of its misery, as it will do so very quickly on its own.

    So sorry.[​IMG]

    Im sorry to hear that. If there is nothing, rather than letting it suffer, i would have it culled. Im sorry [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Make sure it is definetely the insides. It could just be the umbillical cord.

    Ok. Try and stop the bleeding ASAP>> If it won't stop use a damp cloth and sprinkle it with some corn flour. Do you have any idea where the cord was coming from??

    Ok. How active is it? That does look bad. Considering it hatched early it may be a deformation. Give it a litte while and if it's condition does not improve, then I would considering culling it.
