Cleaning poo off pasty butt, thought it was dried poop, but it was her cord.

Did I hurt my chick, I was using warm water, and thought it was kinda being difficult to come off, and I realized it was really attached to her.  Did I just hurt my 6 day old chick?

What were you trying to clean off? Did you get her dry?

So I think she is ok-I didn't remove it, but she was cheeping for about 5 minutes.  She seems happy now, I have never seen something like this cord, it's a little large, it's not bleeding.  Hopefully it will come off soon.

 

Thanks guys, great to know that you are always watching....

No, thank goodness-she was 4 days old when she arrived.  On the ones we hatch, they fall away within a day.  This was a black mass, looking like poo, stuck to her skin.

I thought the dark spot was poo stuck to her body.  This was a chick we received 4 days after birth, she was shipped a long way, and after food and water, she had this spot.  Normally, warm water would remove the dried poo, but I realized, that it wasnt'  She seemed a little mad, for about 5 minutes.  She appears good, all day, quiet and playing with the other chicks, I guess it has to dry up more.
