    I came into my classroom this morning to find 4 more chicks had hatched over night. One has a long slimy membrane coming out of belly (I'm assuming it's the yolk sac) It's pretty long and trails between its legs. There seems to be egg shell attached at the very end.

    Anyone with Experience with this and/or have any advice?

    If it is the yolk sac it should dry up and fall off,Without a pic it's hard to tell.Just leave that incubator closed.

    I will leave the incubator close if I was you, well that's my advice.
