    One of my poults hatched today, a day early, and is up walking around & peeping and starting to FREAK OUT. It's stuck to it's shell by a HUGE blood vessel (still full of blood). Do I just let it keep doing what it's doing?? Should I worry it'll shred it and bleed out? Should I tie it off??

    Wow, so many replies. [​IMG]

    Tiny Turkey is gone. His insides fell out & I had to cull him. I'm devastated, but he was suffering. [​IMG]
