    Could it be the navel stump?

    Have a look at the pictures on this site then and see if there is one that resembles your chick's condition- there will be pictures of navels/bellybuttons and chicks hatched "inside out" (intestines etc. outside of the body) and we'll see if we can get this sorted out!

    My search skill aren't that great but I PM'd you some links so that we can figure out what the lump might be similar to. Beyond that, is the little one pooping?
