What happens?? To not allow the yoke to absorb in chick before hatching? I had a chick that came out of the egg before the yoke had absorbed. The little one was eating and drinking and acted normal but, the yoke was just hanging out of the chick. After about a day, I tied a string around it to clamp it off. Then I snipped off the yoke. I didn't know what else to do. The chick lived a couple more days then died. What went wrong?? Can this be prevented? If so HOW!! I appreciate any information that I can get. Thanks!!
