    So one of my chicks hatched today. She has a bloated stomach and her Babel is red like it's been bleeding. Maybe she ripped it out when she was coming out? What should I do????[​IMG]

    I'm sorry I don't know what a Babel is but, I agree with CTKen about posting on the emergencies thread.

    Update on baby #16 She made it through the night. She is doing so much better her tummy shrank. It looks like her belly was full of yolk. Now she is sticky and had dry yolk all over her. Can I clean her?
