    Hi [​IMG],
    I had 5 chicks hatch yesterday. One did not have the yolk sak fully absorbed. I have left him in the incubator and his breathing is fine and just lately he is starting to peep when he hears the others. Is there anything else I can do for him other than to just leave him in . Will he absorb the sak or is he doomed? Thanks for any input!

    Hi [​IMG]
    The little one was sitting up and walking around chirping loudly to be let out of the incubator so I put her in with the other chicks. They all snuggled down and went to sleep [​IMG] .
    I will keep a close eye on her . I realize she might still pass. I will watch for infection etc. and being pecked on etc. [​IMG] . This is an awesome helpful friendly forum [​IMG]
    Happy Day To All
