In the Brooder
- Jul 18, 2019
I have a little cochin egg that pipped the wrong end over 24 hours ago. Membrane exposed started to look dry. Applied a little coconut oil amd upped the humidity. Watched all day. Still peeping but no progress. I followed the assistance instructions here and removed outer membrane and shell from air sack area. The inner membrane is completely separated from the outer and the shell. But i still see veins. Chick is still ok for now. I gently set him.over in a bowl as the newly hatched keep pecking at the exposed membranes. I am stumped as to what to do next. How do i help this guy out without hurting him???? He just doesnt seem to be in the right position and you know what it looks like if you put something in a baggy then drop it in water.....thats what this looks like.....please help!!!
