    :eek:my two mussies got into a fight on the nest just as the egg was begining to hatch.
    She has ended up out of the shell but her yolk hasnt been absorbed!!!!!
    It isnt bleeding anymore but i think its been ripped.
    Is there anything i can do to help her as she is the only egg.
    Please help
    I have taken her off the fighting duo.

    If it's possible move her into the house and maybe she will absorb the yolk after a few days.

    You can make a quick brooder by getting a box some bedding and a warm lamp.
