    I need to know if I can help her or should I cull her. I don't want her to linger for days. She hatched with an unaborbed yolk and I think she pulled her guts out.

    She's in the incubator alone. This is heart breaking, because she is very active and chripping non stop. :bow:(

    I can't really see what's going on here, can you get a head on shot of the umbilicus?

    I put her back in the incubator in a small basket so there was limited motion. This is what it looks like now. [​IMG]
    I'm hoping she'll make it. I don't understand why she was a late hatch( day 22 )but she wasn't ready to hatch, so why did she?

    I'm not sure if I'm seeing well with all the fluff, but it looks like her navel closed up okay?

    I am surprised she didn't bleed to death. There was so much blood around her egg shell. I don't understand why she hatched if she wasn't ready. The first hatched early on day 22, no 2 midday on 22. She hatched today early day 23. The fourth died in shell.
