    I have one chick and she has a hard red ball on hen bottom not where she poops but closer to her stomach. I also have two that have some kind of jelly sack hanging off the back . Will that absorb back into their bodies? Are will those chicks not make it? Help please. [​IMG]

    Are these brand new babies?

    The first one sounds like you're talking about her "belly button" which will normally shrink down. If they are very new and not too active, you can wrap them in a warm/wet paper towel and put them back in the 'bator.

    Pictures would help us to know exactly what you're talking about on all three.

    I will try to get pictures later today. I had to go to work. They are still in the bator.
