    I had a buff chick with a leg stuck behind its head that was ziping it needed slight help hatching ( i wet the membrane with warm water ) and i see it has a bloody vent and looks like somthing is hanging out. What should i do ?? I know the other chicks will pick on it so i am going to leave it in the incubator until its better. Its mainly rolling on its back kicking it has not stood up and is peeping like mad. Is there anything i can do for the baby ?? He was WAY to big for the egg it was a pullet egg and the chick is bigger than others from bigger eggs. Is it doomed ??
