Thanks,

Is it the only egg in the incubator?

Yes, it was the only one left it did hatch but struggled now his belly is very swollen there was a little blob of what looked like the yolk sac still there so I just did the burrito wrap and put some antibiotic ointment on and have been giving some probiotic/electrolyte water . it seems to have either gone in or just slightly dried up . The little guy is very alert its an German Beilefelder so its auto sex so I am hopeful tomorrow he will be better. Any suggestions for this type of problem would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Karen
