Egg broke

So i have some eggs in the incubator. And one of the eggs broke and the baby is completely out of the egg. The yolk is still attached and the baby is fully formed. The baby is still moving so I put it in a sterile container on some damp paper and put it back in the incubator.
What else can I do?

Ps. The eggs are around the date they could hatch each moment.

Can you post a picture?

What you are doing right now is what I'd do. By yolk still attached, do you just mean to the stomach area?

Yes, the yolk is still attached to the stomach area.
So there is a little substrate on the baby. And I don't know if I can clean it off or what else I can do.
I still see the little heart beating.

I agree with Claudius, you're doing what needs to be done for this baby. Keep it moist and warm and hopefully part of it will be absorbed but since it's huge there will be a significant piece that just falls off. The baby will be very fragile, there's a chance that it won't make it but it might surprise you.

That's too bad. They are very fragile at that stage. Not much you can do besides hope they pull through.

Hopeful that the rest of your clutch comes out well. Who are the parents?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
