    One of my chicks hatched and apparently wasn't anywhere near ready and it's yolk sac popped all over the incubator. The chick that hatched earlier (both early) is walking all in it and getting it on the unhatched eggs. There is currently one pipped.

    Well if the chick is still alive let it finish hatching if possible and then clean up all of the yolk and wipe the eggs off with a warm wash cloth or paper towel
