Possible yolk sac infection (omphalitis), maybe failure to absorb yolk. Can you take it to a vet? It's also possible that it's something minor, but I always worry that it's more serious when this area is involved

@casportpony But where is the proof I thought there would be something sticking out and all yucky looking K? not to go against what you and Amiga are saying but I have seen some pretty gross pics of what your talking about.

If the umbilicus heals with infection on the inside only, you won't see anything, except for maybe a distended belly or maybe something red like this. If it is and infection, not much you can do for it now, except maybe surgery, and I don't think that's an option for most.

Even though she says the duckling is acting normal? I would think it would be pretty sick. Again trying to learn something here.

It might be perfectly fine, only time will tell. The OP did say that the one with the lump is the smallest, which is what I have seen in mine. The last one I had with it lived 41 days. The link below shows how well they can hide their infection:

 

 

Only Graphic picture in that thread is one of the deceased peachick (no necropsy pictures).

I don't mean to scare anyone, it could be nothing. If it were mine I would place it in a brooder on towels, not shavings, I'd weigh it daily and I'd inspect it's poop.
