    Hi, I have this chick that we just hatched that looks like it has not completely absorbed the yolk.

    Do you know what we need to do or will it heal or absorb itself? Do you think the chick will be ok? What is the white thing too?

    I don't really know what to do and how common this is.. Thanks

    Hows your chick today?

    That actually doesn't look too bad. I've had some chicks hatch with a ball of yolk still attached, they absorbed it and ended up being fine. :fl the same is true for your little fluff ball!

    She is fine and doing well today.. [​IMG]

    She is sleeping a lot more than the others and isn't that active but is alive and doing well. It absorbed and healed after it hatched though.

    Sorry if it is do dark to see this image.. :/
