    was transferring a new hatchling to the brood and he jumped to the floor. yolk came from inside of his navel.He is walking and drinking but I don't know how long he may last. He is a wonderful black roo Kabir. I will not post the graphic picture but I am sure some of you have experienced this before.

    Sorry about our chick. I think that has happened to many of us, but maybe not as far a distance. Here is hoping for a good recovery.

    It was worse than I thought the navel was split open and some insides were outside. I had to cull him.[​IMG] I will use a transfer box to the brooder from this point on with a LID!
