    So this keet hatched with the cord wrapped around it's body and I ended up having to cut it because it started to suffocating it. I cut it and it bled a bit but it's ok now. The only problem is that it looks so different than the umbilical cord I've seen before on chicks so I just want to make sure that's what it actually is. I'll include pics from before I cut it too . 1105181345.jpg

    How did you end up going with this bub? I’ve just had a chick hatch with a little still attached and wondering how your Bub went?
