    Hi all,I hope someone can help me. To make a long story short I have a just hatched chick . She 'pipped' and got out in about an hour. She appears to be strong and healthy but, she seems to have a very small 'yolk' still attached to her cord and navel??? Is this normal or does this mean trouble?? Help! She is really screeching at me right now and I am afraid that she will rip that yolk thingy off and a disaster will happen. Please somebody give me some advice.

    Leave it be and it should dry up soon if your worried you could pop her in a cup till its dried then she won't be able to run about and cause too much damage to it. [​IMG] Congratulations on your baby [​IMG]
