I have a egg that was collapsing and it is day 55 of incubation, it collapsed and slit open but the baby is still in tact in the sack. I did some research on a procedure that I think is called cradling. I pulled the egg back without damaging the egg sack or any veins, I got video of the baby moving and opening its eyes. It looks to be fully developed, this was two days ago, but it is smelling a little because the eggs sack is no longer protected by the actual egg shell, but he is still moving and opens his eyes. It is definitely an awesome thing to see, I was looking for any suggestions or ideas on how to keep the stink down. The movement of the baby is awesome and to watch his little eyes open and close is great, I video taped it, about 5 seconds of it, so I wouldnt cause too much stress but it seems to be doing fine, I have it in a tiny custom made container that is designed to give him extra privacy and humidity levels so that he will successfully complete his growth. I have to mist the sack very finally every 4 hours to make sure the sack stays moist, he seems to be adapting very well. I can not let the sack get dried out beside it will wither away and I want to prolong his sack as long as he needs it. This was an emergency procedure and I had no other choice, this was a chance to try to give this little guy another chance. Any suggestions or ideas on this, please let me know. As soon as I get my digital camera back, I will post a picture of the baby sack, it truly is a one time opportunity to see this.
