    My turkey just hatched. It took him a long time. He finally came out but he is still attached to the egg and at his vent area, it looks like , I don't know how else to say it, just meat is hanging out. I'm attracting a picture although it's not very good. Please help. [​IMG]

    What do you mean by "meat"? Is it his intestines or perhaps just the umbilical?

    I can't really tell by the pic but it looks like the umbilicus and egg membrane. There may be a bit of yolk still not absorbed. Please let us know @abgraves69 what the outcome was.

    So far so good. The little guy broke a toe coming out though. He's getting around ok. Still working on eating and drinking.
