Hatchling dragging a green piece of luggage around...is that the yolk sac?
Yes 1st timer here...
If it's green /grayish, it's poo and goo from the egg. Yolk would be a yellow/orange. Hard to say without a pic.
my guess.... poo.
Egg goop/poop it is. A lot of my chicks have had that, or I've seen it left behind in their shells when they come out. It doesn't seem to be anything to worry about.
A yolk sac looks pretty much like you took a yolk from an egg you'd cook with, and then wrapped blood vessels around it and attached it to the belly of a chick. If I see any chicks with this, they are forced to remain in whatever is left of their shell until it is absorbed.
Egg poo/goo it is. Notta to worry about.
Need help asap. I thought it was the yolk but I don't think so.
It is the yolk and bloody membrane. But it's pulled away and looks ruptured. Chances for him are not good. Sorry. Did he hatch naturally or was he assisted out?
He hatched naturally but 24hrs late. I have 2 more trying to hatch
I had one two years ago, a silkie, that pipped and then zipped like 4-6 hours after. Busted out of the top of the egg, not the normal zip around, still fully functioning egg to chick vascular system and yolk. The yolk was fully ruptured. I don't know what made him hatch way before he was ready, whether the yolk ruptured in the shell or during his break out, but he only lasted a couple hours after hatch. It was the only silkie in that batch too.
