    So, i just hatched a chick, and it has something attached to its leg that legit looks like an organ, but if it was, it wouldnt be able to survive, and its no umbilical cord, i cant get pics tho, cause its in a blurry tub in my incubator...

    Hopefully all is okay, but it is impossible to give advice based on your description.

    Sometimes in the egg there is white or yellowish sticky stuff in the egg. Its just some kind of debris. Its normal as far as I know and half of my chicks have it when they hatch out. Its just hatching waste, if that's what you mean.

    It could just be hatching waste, but we can't tell for sure without a picture.
