    Hey all...My last little Delaware that hatched came out with a bit more yolk on it than I have seen before.

    The chic dried OK but has a lot of sticky left on it...also some eggshell bits too.

    Can the chic be cleaned? and if so...how or with what? [​IMG]

    Or should I just let the chick take care of it?

    A warm, damp washcloth (water, no soap) can be used to get off the worst of it. Then you can put the little fellow in the brooder to dry off [​IMG]
