    Hi there!

    One of my eggs hatched today but I think something might be wrong with the chick... He isn't really moving and I think the yolk sac hasn't been fully 'absorbed'.

    Is there anything I can do to help the chick or is he going to die? [​IMG]

    Thanks

    All you can do right now is leave the chick alone to "finish up". There is a good chance it will be fine. [​IMG]
