Hi Everyone! I'm a real newbie when it comes to raising chicks- you see my parents have pet bantams, and a chicken hatched 3 eggs yesterday. She has two healthy chicks but has abandoned 1 chick- it looks a bit sickly, it cannot walk too properly, almost as if it is bending backwards. Whats really worrying me, is the baby could have a pasty vent or umbilical cord? i really don't know how to tell! the 'vent' lies almost between its legs (on its tummy you could say), was covered with a black substance, which i removed with some warm water- only to find a red soft round large mound underneath. Could someone please advice me! I really want this chick to survive!!!
