Abnormal Chick Help Please

Hi all,

I put 43 eggs in my incubator and all 43 hatched (Quite shocked!)

However one of the chicks are a growth on the back end. See picture below.

Does anyone know what it is? Will it fall off? The chick seems fine and is walking about quite happily and is not making a load of noise to give indication that its in pain or distress.

Thank you.
I think that's a partially unabsorbed yolk sac. Not sure what you'd do with it, never had to deal with it myself, but googling for answers on it would probably bring you straight to the threads on this site that have the relevant info. There is a site search tool but external searching seems to work better.

Best wishes.
