i did not know where to put this, sorry if i put it under the wrong thing please move it to where it should be. thanks, silkie i had a buff silkie not hatch after 24 hours of a good pip so we opened it a tiny bit at a time to see what happened since the hatch is late. we knew it was dead after so far open due to the baby not moving and the lack of color and blood in the membrain. so we oped the egg up more and sure enough it was dead but to our surprise it is a weird oddity. we don't know what caused it. the babies abdoman is streatched up to it's shoulders and somehow the baby's head is through it, like it's yolk sac is a donut. it is fully formed nothing wrong with it except this and the yolk sac is fully attached. the abdoman is fully covered i guess u could call it also. does anyone know what would cause this and how it grew this way? has anyone ever heard of this type of thing before?? here is 2 pics i'm uploading more pics of it now. would love ur imput on this.
