    I looked on the bator and a chick got out of the shell with yolks attached to it still. It died. I need a refresher on how to incubate so I know what I'm doing please help :(

    Really, the only thing you can do is let Nature take its course. Sometimes things don't go as we think they should and chicks die. It's part of incubating and hatching. You didn't help the chick in any way, did you? If not, I don't know what you could have done differently. You couldn't have stuffed it back in the shell until it was ready. It's kinda like childbirth - you can't stop it once it gets started.
