    Hi :welcome

    I'm afraid it's not normal for them to stuck to the bottom of the incubator. It's either hatched with its yolk not fully absorbed or it may have a hernia. Sometimes though they can hatch with their umbilical cord and a bit hatch gunk still attached. Could you give a better description of the goo please? Colour etc, a pic would be great too please.
