    I have a malpositioned chick that pipped 24 hours ago. He was rolled around a lot by the other chicks. His pip was down. This afternoon I noticed yellow in the bottom of the bator. I hoped it was from the other hatched eggs. I used a stick and rolled the chick pip up. It appeared to be gasping, so I decided to open the bator. I wrapped it in a moist paper towel and heating pad and prepared to help. At that point I noticed more yolk around the edge of the pip. It was moist. I don't think the you'd has absorbed, so I put the egg pip up back in the Bator. I am sure nature will probably take its course here. If it does hatch, it will likely die of infection. But is there anything else I can do?

    It zipped! There is yolk all over the place. What do I do?
