So my chick after some struggle knock the top off her egg enough that I was able to see she was in dried membranes, I had read extensively the post on assisting a chick over the last fe days so I knew to moisten the membrane without getting water near her beak, which I have done. How do you know when the blood vessels are receded should they be completely invisible? and what about they yolk sac, what should it look like? I can't see anything but I can't see all the way into the egg and I am trying to keep it in the incubator other than the lift the lid and moisten. old ask how can you tell that has been absorbed hers look very thin but I can still see them, she is pretty shrink wrapped but her beak is out so she is breathing and is able to get a bit of movement but the membranes just stretch with her a bit and she is quite tight in there. I don't want to slide back a bit of membrane and find the blood vessels arn't closed. I would say the reason this has happened is because if the last few days upheaval. As I am writing this my incubator has decided to start playing up and turning itself off, it came with a crappy plug that keeps slipping out, I have taped it in but it still slips a bit. I don't think I will be getting any sleep tonight.
