It is alive is there anything i can do? It appears to be very strong moving around, kicking its legs, flapping its wings and chirping...

Wait until the cord dries up, it should fall off on it's own.  If you think it's going to hurt himself by dragging or catching the "stuff" on something, you can snip the cord with some sterilized scissors and let the stump dry up and fall off.

 

Weird.  Can't really tell from the picture, but it could have been a double yolker whose twin didn't develop.
