See if it absorbs any of that yolk. if the yolk starts to run out I would consider tying it off up near the navel and cutting- but only as a last resort. Ruptured yolk sacs have much less chance than just a chick with an unabsorbed yolk sac.

What can I do to clean these few chicks up. Can I do anything about their butts

Just make sure 1/2 of the brooder is heated/warmed to between 90-95F with a cool side that they can move away from the heat if they need to.
