Hi, if it's coming from his belly button and yellow/white then yes all is normal. I have had several like that. If the belly button area is closed and healing well you can cut it off and put some iodine or betadine to make sure it doesn't get infected. If there is blood in it leave it and it should drop off on it's own. But sounds normal to me. Hope this helps x

It did help, thank you. It did eventually break and there were a couple drops of blood but the chick seems to be doing well and is now learning to walk.

I am guessing that the walking attempts and even already pecking at food is a good sign that the chick is alright.
