    If you turn him over normal what will he do? are you working on getting your temp down some in your brooder?

    The circle is around the umbilicus area, A is where the yolk ended and B is a vein to the membrane.

    How to Spot Problems of Newly Hatched Chicks http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-spot-problems-of-newly-hatched-chicks.html


    Brain exposed, too high heat at that egg or flock issues


    no they dont come out like that, you are correct Miss Lydia [​IMG]

    First off, let me say hello! and then I must say.... ducks are different than chicks, they take much longer to absorb their yolk and then longer to turn in there and absorb and cut off all those blood vessels.... if you check out these posts of Rens hatch and keep track of the posting times you will see how long they take to absorb. this duck is weak and was out of the shell too soon... when you see a duck with a hole at the top, just remember that they dont zip like a chick, they have a bill that is higher and they go round and round, it takes time time time.....

    oh so there is no more yolk. Thank you for helping. Should I take him out of the egg then?

    I would let him kick the egg free, but maybe others can comment?

    I am surprised he hasnt, those veins look about shot, drawing anything up into it anyways, I would get him out and get a head start on electrolytes....

    have corn starch on hand case he bleeds and Kathy can tell you what to put on that umbilical area then.
