    I have one BO that just hatched and it appears that it's insides are hanging out. I didn't won't to open the bator yet b/c it's not dry yet. If anyone is awake and can help I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Kim

    Quote:Thanks for asking? It was the yolk sac that was never absorbed hanging out. I think it's a little roo. I hear it's a 50/50 chance of survival. He is very feisty, but I guess only time will tell. I'm trying to keep it clean w/ antibiotic on it. I can only hope for the best. I'm going to post in the incubation sect now that I have pics down loaded.

    Thanks,
    Kim
