    i have never done this, but think i read another on the site say in that sitatuion at that age, that you can snip their heads with scissors. if you did it instantly, it might be the best way.

    good luck and take care

    I am not very experienced so please forgive me but are you sure it's the intestines?? I had one born with the yolk still a little bit on the outside. It was such a small ammount that it absorbed it and has been healthy and happy ever since. I hope that's what it is but I'm sure someone more knowledgable will come soon. Goo dluck!

    I don't think I can do that I don't think I can kill it at all but I don't want it to lay there and suffer

    yes it is its intestines it is about as long as your index finger and is pink curley looking and at the bottom of it is the yolk sack that is as big as the tip of your middle finger. the other one just looks like a button

    What you are describing sounds like the umbilical cord if the yolk sack is attached to the end, not intestines. I'd wait a bit and see - I had one like this and it dried up within a couple hours. It fell off by itself after it dried up.

    Just leave him in the incubator. If the other chicks hatching are pecking at it, then remove them off to the brooder so he can rest and recover without being pestered.
