I had some chicks hatch out last week and one was having a hard time getting out of its shell. We decided to help it out some. It got out of the egg and dried off in the incubator. When we took it out there was a large dark red ball around where the yolk sack is. I tried to give it a bath to get it off once we knew it could handle a bath. I've given it about four baths so far. I've had to give baths to pasty butt chicks before and did the same thing as I did with them. I fill a bowl with warm water, soak a paper towel, and put the chick in the water. The water only comes up to its butt. I then start to massage the area with the paper towel till it comes off and then hair dry the chick. Well with this red ball I can't get it off and it is as hard as a rock. It is touching about a dime to a nickel sized spot on the under side of the chick. The ball is oval shaped and looks like it might be awkward to lay on. The other chicks are about double the size and were hatched the same day. The chick eats, drinks, and poops but looks the same size as it did when it hatched. I'm wanting to get that red ball off without hurting the chick and so it doesn't pull the feathers/skin when the chick grows. Anyone have any ideas?
