    Please help me! I was trying to candle an egg that is due to hatch Christmas day and I dropped it and the yolk broke cause I could hear it sloshing around in the egg. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] .SoI was wondering if the yolk broke would It still hatch or would it drown? PLEASE REPLY.

    It may but I doubt it.

    Shaking it enough to be able to hear the yolk sloshing around probably did more harm than the fall.

    I am sorry this happened to you [​IMG]

    The chick needs to absorb the yolk before it hatches. If the yolk is broken I don't see how it can be absorbed. With out that nutrtion from the yolk, it may not have the strenght to hatch.

    I am always willing to give every egg every chance to hatch so I would say leave it in the bator if there is any chance it may hatch. [​IMG]


    Wanted to add: what did the egg look like when you candled it? Did you see a live chick? Did you candle it after it fell to look for changes on the inside? Look again and you may be able to see movement or otherwise

    Do you think the day it should hatch I should try and help it out?

    I would candle the egg again to see if it is still alive. If it is alive, then you may need to help it out at hatch time. Hatch time is still a few fays away so it's hard to say this early if you will need to help it out.
