So, my first poult hatched today...a day early. A 2nd has PIP'd. The hatchling is now up and trying to walk, with a HUGE blood vessel still attached (and full of blood). Shall I just let him keep doing what he's doing? I'm afraid he'll tear the vessel and bleed out. ****UPDATE*** I went ahead and tied it off, and cut it on the egg side of the tie to avoid shredding. All daay long he was kinda stuck in the egg, and t one point I could see unabsorbed yolk so just left him. Then he came out and ws walking, peeping, and started kinda freaking with the egg trailing (why I tied him off). I did wait till the vessel was "dead" near him. So the unabsorbed yolk was almost gone. Within an hour of him free of the egg his intestines fell out. I had to cull him. My 1st time. I'm so devastated.
