    I am new to incubating and I have lost the first 3 and my last has hatched by herself but she has some goopy stuff attached to her belly, not sure if this is normal or a very bad sign. It is yellow and mucus like.

    Well the stuff attached has been cut off a few cm away from the bird, she got stuck to the towel and i made a choice to free her. She is able to stand but still seems weak, no interest in the water or food. Crossing my fingers as she is a black australorp the only one that has made it this far.
