I've got a couple chicks that were shrink wrapped, and are almost glazed looking now, with hard crusty goo all over them. my question is, can i wash them? and if so just warm water or soap or??? i think i'm going to have to soak one of them a bit, as he was literally glued to the shell and so still has bits of shell and membrane stuck on. but otherwise seems to be doing just fine. the other i'm holding off on doing anything right now, as he managed to bust out of the shell, even tho he was glued in, and still has a small pea-sized bit of yolk still outside. talk about determination. i think he'll get a bath once the yolk is sucked in. but for now he's wrapped in a paper towel to limit the movement some, to prevent any damage to the yolk. had one hatch out early yesterday with the same thing, but he busted the yolk while running around the incubator and died. just crossing fingers for this little guy... but i don't hold my breath.
