Two chicks that I have hatched had this sticky afterbirth stuff on them that did not dry off. Instead, it hardened and got worse after drying. Both of those chicks died. Now there is a duckling in its shell that seems like it may have the same thing happening to it. I wet the membrane, since it always turns dry and leathery. How can I help it?!?!?!
