    I have a Buff Orpingtion baby chick that has something on her backside that I don't know what it is, anyone? It is about an inch below the tail

    Any way you can post a picture? Is it below her vent (poop hole)? Is it her "belly button"?

    I tried but I am new at this and this site says I don't have permission to add the picture. I will try and figure out how to get permission.

    I have just been told that it is a dried up Umbilical cord and that it can be snipped off but not pulled?
