    this chic hatched but appears the yolk wasn't fully absorbed, i had two bantys on the next but one Speckled Sussex decided she would go broody other day and started sitting on top of the bantys, there is alot of yuckie on my other eggs , how do i get it off without disturbing the eggs, majority is due to hatch march 28th, any advice would be greatly appreciated

    You can wash them with a damp rag, or just leave them allow, it will not hurt the chicks.
