    This is when the yolk isn't completely absorbed before hatching.

    Sorry, there is nothing you can do .

    Best thing is to put it quickly out of it's misery.

    This happens most commonly for two reasons:

    1. temperature to high during incubation

    2. genetic problems from inbreeding.

    I would leave it for another couple of days they can and do finish absorbing the yolk after hatching. I know it not ideal but they can survive from this. The yolk can finish absorbing then dries up and falls off. Good luck. Just try to keep the area clean and dry.
