    It is part of the yolk sac. Just leave it be and do not disturb and hopefully the chick will absorb the sac on it's own.

    I had that happen last week to one of mine. The chick pulled it around still attached for several hours and then it just fell off. The is chick is fine and running around with the other chicks.
