    [​IMG]This chick pipped early yesterday and has been struggling

    Is the thing attached normal or prolapsed?

    The pictures aren't clear enough to see what your talking about, but something "attached" isn't good. When were the pictures taken? Those chicks look like they just hatched. I

    Not quite sure what it is, but I know it is NOT good. You can leave the chick in there I see if it goes away or is absorbed, but I doubt it. ----- sorry
    I know this is hard, but if it were mine I'd destroy the chick. Chicks hatched like this that recover always have some sort of problems & a lot do not develop correctly & end up dying anyway
