It went from the belly button up around the neck and down the other side and attached to the belly button. It looked like a thin yellowish cord.

The chick is separated from the rest of the hatch. It's feisty little scrawny but eating & pooping.

A couple days later there's still a hard spot where the black stump of the cord is. I've trimmed a bit off.

Please advise.

Just keep an eye on it. It should fall off eventually. I had one that still had the black dried stump attached a few days after hatch. I wiggled it with my finger (trying to get a look at the underneath) and it dropped right off.
