    I’m sorry I can’t as soon as he pooped I wiped it up it was on my table and then regretted it cause I should of took a pic all I can do is describe it was jelly like and clear with yellow and then the white that you usually see in a normal poop and it smelt bad

    Yup I can it isn’t that great just a bit of back story it’s the only one out of 40 eggs that survived a huge temperature spike in the incubator it also hatched a day late and on the wrong side of the egg he’s got a curled foot and I’m think one splayed leg I’ve been cleaning the part of the belly that looks like the abdomen is sticking out a bit since it hatched in fear that it would get infected

    Okay, I don't want to scare you, but I fear it might be infected. I say this because the times I have seen the yellow poop they had bellies that looked like that. Is a vet an option? If not, do you have any Baytril?
