    I just had a chick hatch. It didnot fully absorb the yolk. It appears strong as it is dragging the shell around. It is still attached to it. Do i just let it dry or do i need to pull it apart.

    Just leave it be. It will absorb the yolk on its own.

    I believe I have read to let it dry- but that if it is a lot... he may not make it.
