    SO, I have a turkey poult almost hatch, but it died just after external pipping. When I cracked open the egg and took out the dead chick, it was very sticky. I opened its beak and it's mouth was gunked up and it looks like it died of not being able to breathe. Any ideas? I need help pronto because I have more tryng right now! Thanks guy, Kat
