    I have seen several unabsorbed yolk sacs. but this one is huge. any one have one this bad who survived? Any tips?

    Here are a couple images, sorry, they are the best my camera can do. It is not as wet and bloody as the flash makes it look, it is dried up, and the little guy is trucking around and eating and drinking, but not ever laying down.

    Keep it seperated from all others-they will pick at it and harm it. Give it a little time and maybe it will absorb through the night-keep it off of bedding and such -you dont want anything to stick to it or snag on it!
