    I have a d'uccle that is 2 days past hatch day. So I pipped for him. Found that he is in a lot of very sticky liquid and can't move well.

    I have a second one that hatched, but no extra liquid and was not sticky. No I didnt open until now to check the other egg.

    Humidity is at 65-67%. Temp 100.

    What should I do? He has not absorbed the yolk. Not sure if he can with the sticky liquid.

    He is active, breathing, trying to move, and alert to me and sounds.

    He didn't make it.
