Went to check on my hen, 1 chick and eggs. I saw you was looking at an egg so I looked closer. The egg had been cracked some how so, the first thing I though of was you have to help this chick out!! So my husband peeled off the egg shell and he took it in put it into a brooder box. But I started checking it out and notice that it's egg shell was not clean. Still inside the egg shell and attached to is belly is a gob of white slimy stuff! It is less a week away from hatching but I am not for sure of the exact date! What is that white stuff, what do I do and will it be ok? Plus I think their might be something with its legs and feet! This will be the second one out of this bunch to have something wrong. But I am going to give it time to warm up and relax before I start freaking out about its feet!
