    New to BYC and new to chickens too! I'm in the process of hatching 14 mix breed chicks. One chick hatched out about an 1 hour ago. He/she has something stuck to his/her vent!??? I don't know if this is normal or not? What do I do? I'd post a picture but have no idea how???
    Thanks in advance!

    It's probably just the belly button, let it dry out on its own.
    It there anything hanging out, or bloody?

    And [​IMG] from Long Island!
    If you go to the index, there are alot of threads under the emergencies section.

    I looked through some posts and I found some situations similar to the one I'm having but not the same. This is a long jelly like thing hanging from the chicks vent. And yes, there is a little bit of blood. If you could tell me how to post of picture I'm sure that would be very beneficial. Thanks!
