    When we came home from work tonight we had 2 hatched chicks in our hovabator. One has what appears to be a blackish bubble protruding from it's vent. Is this prolapse? Would it be wise to add this chick to our brooder already containing 157 healthy 5 day old chicks. Thanks for any advise we can get.

    I don't know what the blackish bubble would be but yes I would keep it seperated for now simply because the other chicks would peck at it. Congratulations on your new chickies.
