Is this something i should be concerned about?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello!

I'm very new to having chickens. We just received our baby chicks this morning.

Earlier this evening I checked them all for pasty butt. When I noticed this on one of my

Leghorn's that had a pasty butt. I cleaned and dried and applied olive oil

 

 

This weird looking thing underneath the vent. Is that something I should be concerned about?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Hi. I am fairly new to chicks and chickens in general, but that looks like the umbilical cord stump. I read you can use a little alcohol to dry out, but eventually it will fall off.

Ok thanks. I will search for it and see what I can find.
