    so we have been waiting for a chick to hatch and he finally has but there was an issue we saw an ambilical cord and thought it would go away so we left it but a few hours later when he should have been moving around he was just lying there with his eyes closed he was still breathing but now there was a yolk like thing coming out of him so we left him then the mother rejected him THREE TIMES! so then I put him in a towel around my neck using a scarf and so we finally found a heating lamp and so he is now just sitting there getting worm he has not moved we think his yolk sack didn't get absorbed but it really just got absorbed by the towel. PLEAS HELP I DONT WANT HIM TO DIE!
