Just had a chick hatch with what appears to be a distended belly. Red and oozing a white discharge from the navel. WHat is this and what do I do? All the other new hatchlings are fine, this is the only one with this issue...

Put it back in the bator! I think its an unabsorbed yolk I have had chicks hatch like this an be fine as long as you leave them to absorb the rest of the yolk.
