    Is it the egg yolk that didn't absorb completely? How big is it? Don't let it dry and stick TO ANYTHING or it will pull his guts out. If it's tiny it will dry up on it s own. Can you get a pic?

    It will probably absorb it overnight.

    The picture is out of focus, but that looks like a LOT of unabsorbed yolk. I have never had one that bad, so hopefully somebody will come along with helpful info. This may not make any sense, but maybe by tomorrow (if there is a real skinny area in the sack/cord between the chick and the lump) it will be dry enough to just cut the chick loose from the lump. That isn't going to to just absorb by itself. Is there a big area of his abdomen that isn't close up yet?

    the problem is the chick trying to pull itself away from that shell and the entire thing bursting and thereafter getting infected (omphalitis/egg-yolk sac infection)... if it were smaller then you could simply keep it moist till it detached of its own accord from that shell... as it is it is very hard to advise you because we cannot see all the details... you could try to keep it moist with a very dilute regular misting of betadine and hope it becomes detached and lay the egg on a wet cloth in the hope the moisture will go through the shell and help it to detach. Once again your main problem here is the chick itself pulling against and the rupture possibility...
    Some have in such instances sterilized a dental floss with iodine and tied the "cord" off to prevent internal inury in such cases...you will need to give this chick nutritional support such as ensure or a baby parrot handfeeding formula mixed in with its starter.
