I'm about to swear off this whole hatching thing completely. The first time I've managed to get more than one chick to hatch, one has a problem with it's navel. He hatched last night with part of the yolk sac unabsorbed (I'm guessing) and has a protrusion from his navel. He was also very slimy/sticky when he hatched, with excess albumen?(white goo) on him and now the feathers are matted on his bottom half. I'm afraid to wash him off so he can fluff up because I don't want to hurt him. I did pick off the bits of egg shell that were stuck to him. He's only my second successfully hatched baby. Is there hope for this guy? I've read that sometimes the navel adsorbs on its own and they turn out fine, and other times when they die. He's walking fine (more like waddling since he's got a lump between his legs) and seems active enough. I never thought chickens could be so emotional. Should I try to wash off the stickiness so he'll fluff? Should I put neosporin/iodine on his navel or leave it alone?
