    I have a chick the hatched out about 4.5 hours ago. It has what I think is its yolk sac still attached to it. There is a little blood also. What should I do? Leave it alone....cut it off? Wait til morning?
    Thanks for your help

    Leave it alone and let it absorb. Do not cut it off!

    I'd leave it alone and check on it in the morning.
