Hi
,
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

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
.
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.
. This is an awesome helpful friendly forum

Happy Day To All
