    How does it look now?

    Looks minimal to me, it should draw into the body within a few hours. By tomorrow, you probably won't be able to tell it was there.

    Just keep it from being able to drag it on anything. And if you have other newly hatched chicks, you may want to keep this one separated until it heals up fully. The others might peck at it.

    Congrats on the hatch!
