    Ok, got the shell pieces off and got most of the sticky off, she did not like it! Lol!
    She is back in the bator drying off. Navel isn't too bad, actually.... I hope she is OK. :fl

    I feel so bad for her, she is peeping loudly and can't really open the other eye still. Do you just dunk em (exept the head!) To give them a bath? I have nooo idea whut I am doing.... Do you think she is warm enough, or why is she so noisy?
