    One of the chicks has a bulbous lump on its bumb I was wandering if this is normal? Is it down to incubation or just genetics? Any solutions.

    If you could post a picture, I can probably be more help. It may just be the umbilical cord and egg sack, but I would like to see before giving a definitive answer.

    Right I'll try to get one soon but s/he is still in the bator so may wait for here to dry off a bit first.

    That might be the yolk sac, but like ShowYourStuff said, we cannot know for sure until we see it :D
