In the Brooder
- Jun 3, 2017
My little Orpington just hatched about an hour ago. He was pipped for around 26 hours and it took him 3 to unzip. He is really gluey and has a somewhat bloody navel and green goo that looks different than the others. I took him out of the incubator because he wasn't drying and was shivering. I put bacitracin on his navel and now have him burritoed in a cloth and a heating pad. What else can I do? Should I wash off the hardened goo? Let him heal more first? Please help! I've put some pics up if it works. He's dryer now.
