    Last night my last ayam cemani baby hatched. It looks like the umbilical cord was wrapped around its leg and it pulled some of its insides out. I clipped the cord to free the leg and put the baby back in the incubator. It is very fiesty and active. Will whatever came out absorb back in? What else should I do???? Im not sure if its insides or now that im seeing ive never encountered this before.[​IMG]

    It may be a small part of the yolk sac has not been absorbed into the abdomen. Make sure the other chicks do not peck at her, if nescessary separate her. It may absorb on it's own.
