Hello. My daughter hatched this chick yesterday. She sent me this pic today. The chick's foot seems to be encased in the yolk sac. As it is drying the foot is being tightened to its belly. Anyone see this before and what can I do.

Try to keep the area moist. Is there any way to gently free the foot? It's hard to tell in the picture if the foot is in the sack or under it. You would need to be very careful to not tear the yolk sack.
