    I have a chick whom I believe has not absorbed the yolk completely. If that is what it is, will it heal and survive? Thanks!!

    Here's a picture. It's on its bottom. I couldn't get the whole bird because it's squirmy. [​IMG]

    Does anybody have any idea if this chick may survive. It is getting very weary.

    Leave him be, it will absorb. I've had many like this, as long as no one messes with it, he'll be fine :)

    Thank you so much for your input! I have it separated and it's gotten a little more peppy since he finally ate so maybe there is hope
