Help! First time hatching chicks!! What is this!?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My first time incubating and hatching chicks... One chick hatched healthy and is doing very well but another one hatched today and isn't looking very good.. It's "moving" around in the incubator (it's actually thrashing everywhere). I took the other chick out so it wouldn't bother the sick one. It has something near it's bum/naval.. Has anyone had this happen before? The chick was really sticky at first but now her feathers are very hard.. I thought it was just poo at first but it's hard. What should I do?? Please help!
