I really need some help!


In the Brooder
6 Years
Dec 25, 2013
I just had 8 chicks hatch, one came out with it's yolk sac still attached. The other chicks didn't seem to peck at it, so I left them alone in the incubator. On day 2 I removed the chicks that had hatched first and left in 3 that still needed a little drying out (including the one that had the yolk sac attached). By this time the yolk sac had detached and when I moved the last 3 to a separate brooder, I noticed something protruding from the chick that had the sac attached. I am trying to keep an eye on it, it still does not seem to be eating, but it is only day 2 since the hatch. It seems to be alert, but rests more than the other late hatched chicks.

I will post a picture, if anyone can give me some advice, I would appreciate it!
