    This is last night right after hatching. Looks great. Now there is something thick, red and dragging hanging out of its butt. And there is a lot of blood all over the place. It doesn't look like yolk. More like intestine or an organ...no shape to it just red and gooey. The chick is standing and able to walk, I don't know. I've got 2 others that have started to hatch but aren't quite there yet.

    Hard to see, but it is red and stringy.
