    One of my runner duck hatchlings came out of the egg with some "goop" anyway...it was attached at the belly and I am afraid it has pulled some of the intestines out with it. Is there anything I can do? There is no free flowing blood or mucus or anything. It appears dry. Suggestions.

    Sounds like they haven't finished absorbing the yolk, leave it be.

    Would it be bleeding if it was something else?
