    I had that problem yesterday, but it wasn't dried. I wrapped the shell and baby up to it's neck in a warm wet/damp cloth and put it back in the bator in a way it couldn't struggle out of the shell. It absorbed in about 12 hours. I don't know if getting the humidity up and a wet cloth will dampen a dried yolk enough so it can absorb. It can't hurt to try.
