    That pretty much says it all.... An egg pipped this morning but not on the top, on the bottom and immediately a yellowish liquid pours out of the hole. I thought at first it was just "after birth" from a chick that hatched a few minutes prior but now that the egg is starting it's zip, you can see bubbles of the liquid inside and even some is dripping out. The chick is very much alive, and I can see the beak moving, but it's not making any noise..... What should I do?? Is it going to drown to death or is there hope?

    Oh my. I'm afraid I have nothing to suggest, but didn't want to see this question go unaddressed.
    Good luck and keep us posted.
