    This chick has been externaly peeping all day. I just looked and there was a little crack in the egg. I opened it up more to give it some air to breathe. And it appears to be stuck still in the membrane. I wrapped it with a warm towel put it back in the incubator increase the temperature a bit and humidity what else can I do?

    She is out. However it looks like the egg sack wasn't fully absorbed into your abdomen and the umbilical cord is attached. I wrapped in a towel in the incubator. Is there anything else I can do? it's not an open sore is just a little extended and swollen.

    if its not open or red, just leave it be.

    if its red then you can apply bacitracin ointment
