A chick hatched with long skinny thing hanging out vent with a blob attached to end.



Should I trim or leave alone?

Thank you! Very detailed and informative post. The sting was broken off this morning, but I haven't had time to examine the navel area. I'm afraid that it may become infected after being dragged around for quite awhile. She came out of the shell very quickly and maybe didn't have time to completely absorb? And I'm thinking that my humidity was too high during hatch. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she pulls through.

Pictures of what fell off her behind last night. Any thoughts? Is this part of the intestines and vent lining? Is it needed for survival?

The belly button area seems well closed, not swollen. The chick is sleepy, but alert.
