Here's a picture, as much as I can do holding a camera in one hand and a peeping, wiggling chick in the other. I'm completely new at having chicks, picked up my firsts yesterday. I thought this chick (silverlace wyandotte) has pasty butt so I was cleaning it. There was some stuff stuff under it's vent, so I was tugging a bit, trying to get it off and it pulled out a bunch of yellow stuff!! I immedietly stopped, because I seemed like I was pulling out it's insides. Kind of like mucus, or even a bit like egg yolk. It's mostly yellow, with a bit of blood. I'm now worried that I may have given this chick a death sentence. Is there anything I can do?? ETA: After talking with a friend with chickens, we've determined it was probably the umbilical cord, so hopefully this chick will be ok.
