It wasn't there when it hatched. It happened when my son fell into the box. He landed on him.looks like maybe it hatched with a little unabsorbed yolk?? Usually those are drawn in by 2 days though. are other chicks with it? Keep it away from others, if possible. You can put some Neosporin on it, and I'd put a soft cloth under the chick so it doesn't tear it up any worse. hopefully it will heal up.
Yes! I feel horrible! I absolutely love my baby chicks.. it is coming from his butt. It has been up moving around. I put a towel in his box and put him on it under his light. I've been so upset I'm afraid we are going to lose him!Oh my gosh! That is horrible the poor thing! I agree with how to treat it with the person above, except it looks like intestines to me! Is it coming out of the cloaca ( bumhole) or slightly under? It is likely it would have internal bleeding.Also, is the chick moving around, or just huddling?It seems likely it may not make it, baby chicks being so fragile. If it is intestines, or something similar, I don't know what you could do
