    I've just had a chick hatch and I notice that there is some "gunk" in the pointy end of the shell.

    I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I do know that it's perfectly normal

    Thanks.
    It's good to know that it's normal but I'm still curious to know exactly what it is.

    I'm not sure how this ended up in the hatch-a-longs forum. I'll try posting again!
