what can i do to help my 2 day old chick who was born unassisted out of her egg looking normal after being placed with the other chicks in the brooder, a huge blood filled yolk sack and umbillicus came out of her vent pulling out her innards. i cut away the yolk sack and cleansed the prolapsed vent with peroxide and applied hemmoroidal ointment and used a q-tip to gently push the contents back inside. the vent will not stay inside the chick is there a better more effective method to care for this chick i am hand feeding her as she is listless, and feeding her water through a straw. she is separate from the other chicks, please advise.
